Blackboard managed hosting will be performing maintenance and audit fixes on our environment Saturday, August 29 between the hours of 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. During that time, Blackboard will be unavailable. We are hoping that the maintenance will resolve some current, intermittent issues with the blogs, journals, assignment and discussions functions.
I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
We are currently experiencing issues with the blogs and journals functions in Blackboard. Some students report receiving an error message when trying to post a blog or journal. Other students are able to post without incident. We are working with Blackboard managed hosting to resolve this issue as soon as possible and we will update you as we learn more.
The Center for eLearning has developed an online student orientation course for students who are interested in learning more about Blackboard Learn and learning online. If you are taking an online course or program, we recommend enrolling in this short course.
After completing the course, you will be able to:
The course is free and open to all CSU Students! To register, go to https://www.csuohio.edu/center-for-elearning/blackboard-orientation-course
DID YOU HEAR? Free Office ProPlus 2013 for all full and part-time tuition paying students at Cleveland State University.
IS&T has worked with the Microsoft Corporation and the Inter-University Council Software Licensing Committee for over a year to bring you this exciting offer.
