April 20, 2017: Blackboard maintenance

Standard maintenance time for Blackboard services is 5:00 AM to 7:30 AM each Thursday morning. Faculty, students, and staff may be unable to access Blackboard during this window.

Fischer B2 install

The Fischer B2 will allow technical staff to tie Blackboard account provisioning to the campus-wide Account Center system. That system will go live in May/June of this year, and should streamline the account creation process for all services across campus.

Full-text-index job removal

Our current Blackboard version no longer needs or includes the "full-text-index" job, but it is still scheduled to run. Because the job no longer exists, it should be removed.
