SafeAssign will be unavailable between 0600-0800 BST on 18 May 2021 (see details for other time zones).
During the maintenance, Students will be able to submit as normal. Assignments will be affected as follows:
- Files will be queued and sent to SafeAssign after the maintenance is complete.
- Instructors accessing the SafeAssign course tool will see an error.
- If an instructor creates a Blackboard assignment during this downtime, and checks the box to enable SafeAssign, that setting will not be saved. They will need to edit the assignment after the maintenance window is over to enable SafeAssign.
This does not affect Turnitin, which is a separate assignment type.
Blackboard will post updates to their status site during, and when the update is complete.
