Beginning with SU2018, UMBC's Blackboard will receive monthly updates as part of Blackboard's continuous delivery model. As a software industry standard practice, continuous delivery updates are small, may include maintenance, enhancements and/or new features, and are delivered on a more frequent and consistent basis.

Blackboard posts its continuous delivery software update schedule about 3-4 months in advance. We have excerpted a sample here, but users can also review the information posted on Blackboard's schedule.

*These dates are approximate: Our system may be updated a couple days before or after this date.
Updates are queued to begin at 5 PM Eastern Standard Time and take approximately 24 hours, but n
o downtime is expected.

On a rare occasion, Blackboard may take its cloud infrastructure down for 2-6 hours for updates. We always attempt to notify the campus at least 5 days in advance of these downtimes; however, at times unanticipated maintenance windows are necessary to address important updates for optimal system performance.
