Blackboard Maintenance – January 7-9, 2018

The San Jacinto College Blackboard system will be unavailable during the period of January 7, 2017 at 12:01am through January 9, 2017 at 11:59 pm for system maintenance, as scheduled in the Academic Calendar. During this maintenance window the following actions will be taken:

  1. Upgrade Blackboard operating system. This upgrade will affect back end processes used for system administration and will not change Blackboard functionality for users.
  2. Enable the New Box View (replacement for Croc-o-Doc).  For more information about New Box click here.

Additional details will be announced as they become available.

STEPS YOU SHOULD TAKE PRIOR TO JANUARY 7, 2017

  • Faculty should take time to archive copies for each of your courses. This process will create a permanent record of the course, including all content and user interactions. Archived copies of courses should be kept in a secure location like your SJC H:\ drive folder. You may find this End of Semester Checklist handy for details on archiving your course(s).
