LMS Blackboard maintenance schedule

All predetermined dates in which the LMS may be unavailable due to maintenance will be published here

A number of predetermined LMS maintenance windows may be scheduled during the year to allow for planned system updates or technical fixes to be applied to the LMS. These windows may result in the LMS being unavailable for several hours. The dates will be scheduled to minimise any impact on teaching and learning.

The precise scheduling of outages will be advertised following consideration of the University academic calendar, engagement with Academic Units, and the approval of Business Impact Review (BIR) reports by Academic Services leadership. This ensures that on a case by case basis, LMS maintenance windows cause the least possible disruption to staff and student learning and teaching activities.

If a planned outage is necessary to perform particular maintenance work, the LMS will be unavailable for the least amount of time possible to carry out that work.

An initial notice as well as reminders of any planned outages will be sent across a number of communication channels and provided to staff and students at least 10 working days in advance.
