We will be updating the Blackboard Learning Management system from 9.1 Service Pack 5 to 9.1 Service Pack 7 on Saturday, June 9 between midnight and 10AM. The Blackboard Learning System functions will be unavailable. Portal services including UR ePay, Student/Instructor/Advisor Access and email will be available.
Most of the changes are performance improvements and enabling some new data features.

- Browser Compatibility updates
Additionally, the Learning Objects Blog and Wiki tools will no longer be available. You can find out more about the Blackboard native Blog and Wiki tools and exporting your Learning Objects data before June 30, 2012.

For anyone experiencing display issues when you paste content into Blackboard from Microsoft Word or other sources that include markup code, the new Paste from Word Mashup tool should help.
Select the Paste from Word option.

Unavailable courses that are older than two years will no longer be displayed to faculty, instructors and course builders. We believe that this will cut down on the number of courses listed and make management of course materials easier. Faculty and instructors can request access to older courses (up to 5 years) by sending an email to Blackboard Support with the name of the course and the semester it was taught.
This currently applies to academic courses in the School of Nursing and the School of Medicine and Dentistry graduate programs.
