Reminder: Blackboard maintenance taking place this Friday, November 29th

Our Blackboard system will be down for maintenance on Friday, November 29th from midnight to approximately 6:00 A.M. U.S. Central Time for required maintenance.  PLEASE NOTE that if you access the system during this downtime, your browser may "save" the "Blackboard is currently offline" message and display that to you for several days after the maintenance has been completed.  Please contact OU Help if this happens so that we can help you to clear your browser's cache so that you once again see the Blackboard login screen.  The system will not be down for more than 6 hours, so please make sure you contact OU Help instead of assuming the system is still down.

We apologize for any inconvenience and ask for your patience as we strive to keep our e-learning environment in top condition for our students and instructors.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact OU Help: www.ottawa.edu/ouhelp.

Discussion Board Issue Resolved

We’re excited to announce the recent issue with discussion boards freezing has been resolved. You can resume pasting text directly from Word to Blackboard, however for the best Blackboard experience possible we recommend that you only use Firefox as your browser.

If you encounter this issue again, please email ouhelp@ottawa.edu along with the name of the course and the specific discussion which is freezing up.
