Blackboard Learn Managed Hosted

The migration of Ulster's Blackboard Learn system to managed hosting is complete.

The corresponding switch-over of the Module Access Request system is underway -- outstanding requests made since Thursday 25 August are not yet available in Blackboard but will be processed as soon as possible.

An all staff/student email will be sent on Monday morning when the environment is officially live.  You can use the system on Sunday 28 August during this at risk period, bearing in mind that some staff access requests have yet to be activated.

Requests for module access or content migrations can still be made during Blackboard's downtime, however, they will not be processed until Blackboard is back online on 29 August.
