Datacenter Scheduled Maintenance

Saturday, February 6, 11:00 pm to
Sunday, February 7, 3:00 am 
Pacific Time (–0800 UTC)

Blackboard Managed Hosting Engineers will perform system maintenance.

Although this maintenance is not expected to interrupt service, we are notifying you in case you experience intermittent connectivity for few minutes during this maintenance window.

Students:  Do not take a test during this time.  If you encounter intermittent connectivity, you will probably lose your work.
Also, to be safe, upload assignments well before or after the maintenance.

OIT can not recover work not saved or not correctly uploaded during maintenance time.

Please plan accordingly.


Test Taking Best Practices

  • Use a computer with a wired connection.
  • Read the Test Taking Tips.
  • Avoid mobile devices and wireless connections.

Blackboard File Naming Protocol

When uploading files to Blackboard (e.g.,submitting assignments, attaching documents)

  • Use only letters, numerals, hyphens, and underscores in the file name.
  • Other characters or spaces may corrupt the file and make it unusable.
  • Limit the complete file name to 64 characters.
