UPDATE: eLearning Outage

The eLearning restore process is taking longer than expected. We are waiting on a new time estimate from Blackboard for when eLearning will be back up.  Once we get this information, we will forward to users.  Thank you for your patience as we work to get this resolved.

PLEASE READ: eLearning Outage TODAY

Early this morning, an eLearning process ran that caused significant negative impact on student data for U18 courses.  Blackboard is taking eLearning down for approximately 4-6hrs, starting ASAP, in order to restore to a 9pm Tuesday evening backup point.  We apologize profusely for any issues this causes. Please know that once this is complete, we will work with OIT to ensure that this does not happen again.
