Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
Patches to address video issues and other improvements will be installed on Hofstra’s Blackboard on Monday, Aug 3. As a result Blackboard will be unavailable between the hours of 3:00 AM and 1:00 PM EST. If you need access to files located in Blackboard during that time, please download them before the upgrade starts. When Blackboard comes back online by 1:01 PM EST, all of your courses and material will be available again.
This maintenance will fix the YouTube Mashup tool as well as correct the problem of Kaltura video links failing after a Blackboard course copy.
If you have any questions, please e-mail email@example.com, or call FCS at 516-463-7777 Option 2 Option 2. We'll be available between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Mon-Thur, and 9 a.m - 4:00 p.m. Friday, July 31st.
Thank you for your patience and support!
