Our Blackboard managed hosting team actively monitors our environment. Their technicians have proactively suggested the application of cumulative patch 3 for our version of Blackboard and some configuration changes that will improve performance. This maintenance window requires that the system be offline to all users, and will be completed at a time to minimize the impact to our Blackboard users. The maintenance period will begin Thursday, March 5th at 12:01 am and is expected to be complete by 04:00 am EST. To minimize loss of work or interruption of connection to our Blackboard servers, we ask that you log off completely before 12:01 am 3/5/15, and resume working after 04:00am 3/5/15.
