Blackboard Module Rollover and Upgrade 2016/17

The module rollover process will take place over the weekend of the 30th/31st July. Modules for the new academic year will be available from Monday 1st August 2016. You should not experience any downtime during this period.

NUIT will be upgrading the current version of Blackboard to the Q4 2015 release over the weekend of the 6th and 7th August and you may experience some downtime whilst this takes place. There will be no significant user interface changes to note but the upgrade is necessary to ensure that system bugs are fixed and to ensure Blackboard stability.

We have created a Module Rollover Guide which details what happens when your module/community rolls over to the new academic year.  Please note that rollover has not changed from previous years. The guide has simply been created to document the process and answer some of the questions we regularly get asked.

Where relevant, please ensure that key documents for your module are up to date for your new cohort of students.

If you require any further information about this or would like us to help you ensure your module is ready for the new academic year, please contact LTDS.
