Blackboard Upgrade Scheduled for May

Blackboard will be performing an upgrade to our system beginning Sunday May 21st. Blackboard will be down for a significant period of time. Blackboard will be down starting on Sunday the 21st until Thursday May 26th. We know this is significant downtime and it will be very inconvenient for a number of people.

This upgrade will provide us many benefits in the future, such as less downtime for upgrades and security patches. We will receive updates and new features much faster than previously. We will also be ready for the new Blackboard they have deemed as Ultra. To learn a little bit more about this new Blackboard you can go to their blog posting here. This change to ultra will not be happening during this upgrade but at a later time.

If you have any concerns or want to have more information feel free to contact us at tlt@kumc.edu or 913-588-7107.
