Notice: Friday night, December 8, Blackboard will be down for a critical update beginning at 8:30 PM. This critical update is replacing an expiring grading tool (Crocadoc) with a new grading tool (Box View). The window for updating is very tight (3 weeks) with thousands of schools needing to update. We did the best we could to get a time slot for the update that would have the least amount of negative impact. Traditionally, data shows us that fewer students access Blackboard on Friday evenings than any other time of the week, therefore Mid-State has scheduled the maintenance to begin at 8:30 PM. Blackboard will be up and running at the latest on Saturday morning by 8:30 AM.

Blackboard is used by most distance education courses. Many face to face courses at Mid-State also use Blackboard to provide a single place for the students to go for content, resources, turning in assignments, and more.
