Scheduled Downtime: December 25th 12:01 AM – December 27th 11:59 PM
Services Impacted: Blackboard Learn
Blackboard is moving to the cloud!
Blackboard Learn is scheduled to move to SaaS hosting on December 25-27th. This will require a three-day downtime.
What are the benefits of SaaS? This new delivery model is more flexible than our current hosting plan:
- Reduced downtime. After this change is complete, we will be able to complete most maintenance updates without ever taking Blackboard offline.
- Higher quality. Because we will receive continuous software updates, we will always be running the latest bug fixes from Blackboard.
- Faster access to new features. The SaaS model allows us to deliver new features faster than we have in the past.
- Peace of mind. Blackboard’s experienced hosting team will be on-duty 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so that our technicians can focus on other strategic priorities.
