Blackboard Notifications Currently Unavailable - Thursday 16 March 2017

In order to provide students and staff with a reliable Blackboard platform during high usage periods, the Blackboard Notifications tool has been made unavailable.

As a result, the following tools do not presently send notifications:

  • Alerts
  • What’s New
  • Needs Attention
  • To Do
  • Daily Dashboard emails
  • My Blackboard Updates page and Post page

This does NOT impact the ability to generate emails using tools such as:

  • Announcements email
  • Course email tool


ITS is working closely with Blackboard on a solution to reinstate notifications whilst ensuring a consistent experience. Further updates will be provided when available.

If you have any queries, please contact the Service and Support Centre.

For more information about planned maintenance works, please visit the IT service status page.
