SS Faculty Can Download 4-Week Bb Grades to Excel

August 5, 2013 1:48 PM
To install a missing patch set that is stalling back end processes, including faculty export and import of content for Fall 2013 courses, DoIT will be taking Blackboard down from 10 p.m. to midnight tonight, August 5.

Unfortunately, DoIT's restart of the Blackboard server on Friday, August 2, did not fix the problem with stalled back-end processes, but it helped identify the cause. We regret the inconvenience, but need to proceed so faculty can prepare for the Fall semester. We also don't feel this can wait until our regular, weekly maintenance window this Friday.

Note to Summer Session Faculty: DoIT knows that 4-week SS course grades are due tomorrow, August 6. If you will need access to grades in Blackboard, we recommend that you download your Bb gradebook to Excel BEFORE the 10 p.m. downtime begins. For help, see the following FAQ:
