Blackboard upgrade postponed

We’re sorry to say that, with very little notice, Blackboard cancelled the upgrade which had been due to take place yesterday. This is because they had discovered a new bug, which was deemed sufficiently serious to put the success of the upgrade in jeopardy. No doubt determining the cause of this bug, and resolving the issue, will now be an absolute priority for Blackboard. However, until we know more about the likely timescales, we are unable to reschedule our upgrade.

In the meantime, our plans for course rollover are unaffected, and this will take place as scheduled on Saturday 8th July.
