Blackboard plans to perform a scheduled update from 01:00 a.m. to 05:00 a.m. on Thursday, July 11, 2019. Access to the Blackboard Collaborate Ultra service may be intermittently and briefly interrupted during this time frame. Affected users should re-attempt to login to the service; otherwise, all access will be restored once the update is completed.

New updates include:

  • Moderators can now rename files uploaded to a session
  • Moderators and/or presenters can now enable browser chat push notifications to alert them to new chat messages in the session, even while the application is minimized
  • Moderators can share files, with one or more breakout groups

Your patience is appreciated as the vendor performs this work.
