Blackboard upgrade – latest bulletin

August 11, 2012

We have been upgrading our Blackboard virtual learning environment to version 9.1 Service Pack 8. We have also updated our server operating system and database software, to ensure that we have the optimum combination, and to offer improved stability.

The upgrade is essentially now complete, but there are a few housekeeping jobs to be done – system backups and the like – before Blackboard is brought back into use. We are on schedule to bring the system back, as planned by Monday 13 August 2012.

We apologise for the interruption to service needed to implement this work, but we are confident that the upgraded system will provide an improved service for all.
