Blackboard system engineers will be performing infrastructure maintenance at the data center where RCBC's Blackboard system is hosted. This maintenance will cause some system downtime between the hours of 12:00 AM EDT and 6:00 AM EDT on Sunday, November 19, 2017. Although the system might be "up" occasionally during the indicated time, we do expect Blackboard to be offline from time to time during these hours. Therefore we strongly advise you to schedule your class activities accordingly.
We also advise you to keep backups of any work you plan to submit. For instance, pre-type discussion or blog posts in Notepad and then copy-and-paste them into Blackboard so that you have a local copy and we do not recommend starting any tests or quizzes during the hours directly before or after the scheduled maintenance window.
Thanks for your patience as this important system work is being done.
