Due to icy conditions, the University will open today at 10:30 a.m. Classes will begin at 10:50 a.m.
The Blackboard Learning Management System will be unavailable on Monday, May 19, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. for a scheduled upgrade and maintenance.
Instructors and other campus members will find several minor changes to existing Blackboard tools and features, as well as new tools such as the Retention Center, which can help instructors identify students who may be at risk, Inline Grading, which provides a split screen for grading various types of assignments, and Video Everywhere, which can be used to create impromptu movies.
