  • Blackboard Upgrade Scheduled to Begin on December 13 (Friday, November 18, 2016)

    On Tuesday, December 13, beginning at 12:01 AM CST, IT will begin an upgrade of Blackboard Learn to the latest stable release. During this maintenance, blackboard.olemiss.edu will be offline. We expect Blackboard Learn will be available on Thursday, December 22. However, we will make every effort to complete this work as quickly as possible and will announce availability once the maintenance is complete.


    If you are the instructor of a Blackboard course and anticipate that you will need access to your Blackboard Grade Center data during the upgrade period (12/13 - 12/21), we advise that you download a copy of your Blackboard Grade Center data to Excel prior to December 13.  For instructions on downloading your Grade Center data, view the Downloading/Uploading Grades section of the Blackboard Grade Center Tutorial.
