[Performance Issue] Blackboard Learning Management System

The Blackboard Course Management system experienced significant slowness and malfunction that impaired students ability to submit assignments and complete assessments normally. This problem took place from approximately 8:15PM to 12:30AM. As of the present time, this issue has been resolved. Any students who believe that their ability to access or utilize their course resources properly was impacted by this matter, we would encourage you to please contact your course instructor via the “MyMessages” tools within your course(s). Your instructors have been notified of last night’s technical problem and should be able to address any questions or concerns you have.
