Announcements for Blackboard Learn 9.1
The TTU IT Division, working in cooperation with TTU Worldwide eLearning, the TLPDC, and Blackboard Managed Hosting, will upgrade Blackboard to a newer, more robust version on Friday, January 13th, starting at 12:30am and lasting no more than 24 hours, but we anticipate this maintenance will be completed in 12 hours. TTU Blackboard services will be unavailable to customers during this timeframe. The list below are highlights of the new features and enhancements this upgrade will bring:
- HTML 5 Support - The Content Editor now supports HTML5 Audio and Video playback in Chrome and Edge browsers.
- Browser Support - The Microsoft Edge browser is now supported
We have collaborated with colleges and areas to select the best possible time for this semi-annual maintenance, resulting in the least amount of impact to instruction and semester preparation. Once we have restored Blackboard services, we will post a TechAnnounce to the campus community. Should you experience any issues outside of this maintenance window, please contact IT Help Central at (806) 742-4357 (HELP) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
