We will be performing necessary maintenance to Blackboard on Tuesday, August 19 from 5 am - 7 am.
While we expect Blackboard to remain available, please be aware that there may be a chance of interrupting a user's work during this time and the performance could be degraded.
August 2014 Updates
Please contact BlackboardSupport@ku.edu or 785-864-2600 if you have any questions or concerns.
Blackboard will be unavailable from Saturday, August 2 at midnight until 10:00 p.m. on Sunday, August 3, for an upgrade to the newest service release, and to install new modules. The extended outage is necessary due to the scope and complexity of the upgrade. We regret the inconvenience this outage may cause and we thank you for your understanding and patience.
For more information about these new features and modules, please see: http://blackboard.ku.edu/new-Fall2014-upgrades.
Blackboard Learn — KU’s supported learning management system — helps instructors manage and deliver course materials online.

- Need a Blackboard workshop or information? KU IT sponsors a Blackboard Bootcamp at the beginning of each semester. Bootcamp is a week or two where multiple sessions of Blackboard workshops will be available in order to accommodate busy schedules. Instructors and staff are welcome to attend as few or as many as they desire. Our recommendation is to attend Getting Started first. To see the workshop schedule and enroll, visit workshops.ku.edu and check out the August schedule.
- No time for a scheduled workshop? Contact us at Blackboard Support (firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-864-2600). We offer individual desk side coaching and small group trainings when you are available or ask us about our newest virtual offering Blackboard 101. Instructions on self-enrollment can be found here.
