As mentioned in the BB Maintenance page, Blackboard will be down from August 7 - 10. This will allow us to upgrade Blackboard to the latest release, April 2014 Release.
What will you see after the upgrade?
Student Preview will allow you to see your course from the student's point of view on the fly: a true student preview without the hassle of logging in with a different account
Improved SafeAssign integration means that you can simply check a box on an assignment to turn it into a SafeAssign assignment
For faculty: course availability, email, and announcement tools available outside your course (the "Qwickly" tool)
Inline Grading expanded
Significant figures in calculated formula test questions
Anonymous and delegated grading
Date management enhancements
