Blackboard is scheduled for regular maintenance Fridays from 4PM-6PM.
In addition, Blackboard hosting has a regular weekly maintenance window on Fridays from 2AM-6AM.
Please do not do any work on the server at that time.
If you are a student and are having issues logging in directly to Blackboard please try logging into MYRIC and clicking on the Blackboard link.
If you can't login through MYRIC please visit the Student Account Page.
If you need help with your account, please contact the helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 401-456-8803.
Due to support, reliability, and security concerns the Blackboard Chat function is no longer supported and will be discontinued as of December 31, 2015.
Currently, in order to use the Chat function, every student and faculty participant must downgrade Java on his/her individual PC or Mac. The Java downgrade is a difficult process to perform and support, and it introduces a security risk to the individual PC or Mac.
