Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
Blackboard will be conducting annual maintenance of LCSC's "instance" on Sunday 7/31/16 beginning at 7AM PDT. The maintenance is scheduled for three hours and service should be restored by 10AM PDT.
UPDATE -- 2016FA access will be restored beginning Tuesday 7-12-16 and should be fully restored by Wednesday. Thanks for your patience during this update.
In July we will be blocking instructor access to 2016FA courses in order to update them. These updates address technical and ADA compliance issues as we ready courses for migration to the cloud environment and a new Blackboard service pack for that environment.
Provost Stinson outlined these steps to both the faculty Senate and to the division chairs and they are committed to this process. Some of you will remember that a similar process took place when we migrated from local servers to managed hosting by Blackboard.
We will begin cutting off access after the Independence Day holiday and will administer the updates thereafter. Some of the adjustments are system-wide, some are at the course level so the process will be somewhat protracted. We will work on WEB sections first, then HYBF and LEC. We will restore access on a rolling basis as work is completed and will try to have your back in your fall courses as soon as possible.
