Put Some Tech in Your T&L

We received the following alert from Blackboard:

Blackboard SafeAssign maintenance – Delay in services expected. 

On Thursday, July 21st, 2016, between the hours of 4:00 am to 2:00 pm EDT, the Managed Hosting Infrastructure Team will be performing SafeAssign Maintenance.

During this outage SafeAssign will remain available and responsive for paper submissions but customers should expect a delay in document processing and Originality Report generation.  The delay in processing is expected be several hours but should not exceed 10 hours from upgrade start.  During this time, submitted papers will be queued for processing once the upgrade is completed – no submissions or data will be lost, only results will delayed in returning Originality Reports and SafeAssign results to end users.  Blackboard Learn instances will continue to operate normally, and users may view submitted documents within the Learn interface as normal while SafeAssign results are delayed.

Use of SafeAssign can continue as normal after the planned downtime is complete.
