The SafeAssign service will be unavailable due to maintenance starting at 11pm Pacific Time on Thursday December 26 until 11am Pacific Time on Friday December 27. During this time instructors will not be able to create or modify SafeAssignments or view submissions and students will not be able to submit assignments.
The rest of the Blackboard system will not be affected by this maintenance.
The bulletin from Blackboard follows:
The SafeAssign central services will undergo maintenance that requires a service outage on Friday, December 27, 2013 2am – 2pm US Eastern (GMT -5). During this time, SafeAssign functionality will not be available and an error will be displayed to the user.
The SafeAssign services and databases are being moved within the Managed Hosting infrastructure to a new environment and therefore require a full shutdown in order to prevent data corruption. This support bulletin will be updated when the maintenance is complete.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact Blackboard Client Support if you have any questions
