The Blackboard Learning Management System will be unavailable on Thursday, April 12th from 10 p.m. – 6:00 a.m. for phase one of a migration to Blackboard’s Cloud. After the April 12 maintenance window, there will be two instances of Blackboard running. Instructors are asked to be flexible in terms of Blackboard activity and deadlines that fall during or close to this timeframe.
Please note that Spring and Summer Term 2018 courses, as well as departmental, committee, and other non-CRN courses will continue to use our current Blackboard system at https://blackboard.hartford.edu until the conclusion of the Spring term, at which time we will move these courses to the Blackboard Cloud version.
After a brief delay, faculty and students will have access to the remainder of the Blackboard courses at https://hartford.blackboard.com . All courses prior to spring 2018 will be copied to the Cloud on April 12. Therefore faculty and students should refrain from making changes to academic courses prior to spring 2018 until they have access to the Blackboard Cloud version.
Faculty are encouraged to contact FCLD with any concerns and/or questions about this upgrade, (860) 768-4661 or firstname.lastname@example.org . Students experiencing technical difficulties with Blackboard should call (860) 515-3742 for assistance.
