Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
We are aware of an issue where Blackboard is responding slowly this evening. Blackboard is aware of the problem and is working on a solution.
We apologize for any inconvenience. As a precaution, please save all work as often as possible tonight until we get the issue resolved. We plan to have a restart tomorrow morning at 1:30 AM, but will hopefully have the issue resolved before that time.
*UPDATE* The responsiveness issues are corrected. If you are still experiencing slowness, then save your work, exit Blackboard, close your browser, open the browser and log back into Blackboard. You should then see an improvement. If not, then we recommend clearing your cookies and cache. We will be monitoring Blackboard for responsiveness all evening.

When the update periods are no longer needed, this announcement will be deleted.
