Hello ECU Faculty, Staff and Students – 

You have been redirected to this page because ECU’s Blackboard system is currently down for a minor feature refresh upgrade.  The planned downtime window is from 5/12 – 5/16.  During this downtime anyone who attempts to access https://blackboard.ecu.edu will be re directed to this blog post. That is why you are here.  :-)

During this planned downtime, we will be upgrading the Bb platform and then testing all Bb tools and building blocks to ensure that they are working as expected.

To learn about the new features that you will see after the upgrade is complete  please visit this blog post.

If you have any questions at all regarding the downtime feel free to email longm@ecu.edu .  If you have any general Bb questions or other questions I would encourage you to enter a helpdesk ticket at https://ecu.edu/9866
