Blackboard and Big Blue Button outage

Tue, 09/16/2014 - 4:18pm -- by Joanie Raisovich

Update: Both systems are available again, as of 6:30.

We are currently experiencing an outage for Blackboard and Big Blue Button. Our hosting provider is aware of the situation, and they are working on the problem. The outage began around 4:05 this afternoon.

IT will post an update here when we have further details. 

Big Blue Button outage

Tue, 09/09/2014 - 1:06pm -- by Joanie Raisovich

We experienced a Big Blue Button outage from Friday evening on August 29 through the afternoon of September 2.

If you attempted to save a recording during this time window, there is a chance the recording was lost.

WVNET has made changes to the system to address the problem. Please contact the Teaching and Learning Commons at 304-367-4810 if you have questions.

We are excited to begin offering 24/7 Blackboard support for faculty and students through a partnership with WVNET. We have contracted with WVNET to supplement our current support by offering evening and weekend Blackboard assistance.

Please continue to contact the Teaching & Learning Commons during our normal business hours, and contact WVNET for assistance outside those hours. WVNET will be able to support Blackboard questions only; all other questions should be directed to the Teaching & Learning Commons as usual.
