My colleagues over at the MedCenter are announcing the big upgrade this weekend. Let’s hope this downtime goes smoothly and everything just works come Monday (fingers crossed)

URMC Learn

We will be updating the Blackboard Learning Management system from 9.1 Service Pack 5 to 9.1 Service Pack 7 on Saturday, June 9 between midnight and 10AM. The Blackboard Learning System functions will be unavailable. Portal services including UR ePay, Student/Instructor/Advisor Access and email will be available.

Most of the changes are performance improvements and enabling some new data features.

  • Performance Improvements
  • SCORM Integration
  • Browser Compatibility updates

Additionally, the Learning Objects Blog and Wiki tools will no longer be available. You can find out more about the Blackboard native Blog and Wiki tools and exporting your Learning Objects data before June 30, 2012.

If you have questions please contact Blackboard Support via phone at 275-6865 or via email at
