Blackboard will be ‘at risk’ between 6:00pm and 7:30pm on Friday 26 October 2012 and students should avoid taking tests or submitting assignments during this period.
This is also a general reminder that deadlines for assessment attempts and assignment submissions in Blackboard should not be set after 4:00pm on Fridays, or at any time on Saturdays, Sundays, or when the University is closed for holidays. These times are considered ‘at-risk’ periods when essential systems maintenance on Blackboard may take place. This means students may not be able to login, successfully submit their work or complete their attempts.
It is considered good practice to avoid out-of-hours deadlines as students cannot contact someone at the university about last minute questions or difficulties.
