Blackboard system maintenance - Saturday 10 December 2016

As part of routine maintenance, Information Technology Services (ITS) will be undertaking annual system recovery testing of RMIT’s Blackboard system. A two hour service interruption to Blackboard is required to support this activity from 12.00am to 2:00am (AEDT) on Saturday 10 December 2016. Check your local time here.

During this test the Blackboard Disaster Recovery environment will be temporarily made available in place of our normal production environment. As there is potential for users to access the Disaster Recovery environment during this test, a banner will be uploaded on the site to ensure the environment is visibly different from production. Students and staff are encouraged to access Blackboard outside of this period.

This testing will ensure Blackboard continues to function in the event of an unforeseen system emergency.

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