February 15, 2019: Turnitin service outage

Turnitin experienced a major service outage which would have prevented users from submitting, viewing, or grading assignments between 6:52 AM and 11:06 PM.

The vendor's tech team has indicated that the outage was caused by an "unexpected database issue" which they were able to resolve.

Blackboard itself remained operational throughout this incident.
