UPDATE: As of 11:30 PM, Blackboard is again accessible, and the maintenance work has been completed. Please keep an eye out on this site for communicating new features, but you will notice the most significant one immediately after logging into UR Blackboard. It is called Qwickly and allows quick interaction with your course(s) whether you are an instructor or student. You will see it on your UR Blackboard tab in the main area.
Blackboard will be unavailable for an outage Friday, July 15th beginning at 10 PM. Please know the system will not be available between 10PM and approximately 1:00 AM and no changes will be made to course content. This outage will improve the use of the Blackboard Mobile Application and increase security of the system. Please make sure you have updated your browsers and cleared your cookies and cache before logging onto the system after the outage.
