The S&T campus Blackboard instance will be unavailable from 8:00 a.m. on May 21 through May 23.  During this time, Blackboard will be upgraded to version 9 and any course(s)/course content created on the temporary blackboard 9 server (blackboard9.mst.edu) will be transferred to the newly upgraded system. Blackboard services will be restored no later than 8:00 a.m. on May 24.

Blackboard9.mst.edu will not be returned to service since content housed on that system will be transferred to blackboard.mst.edu during the upgrade process.

Please call the Help Desk with questions about this or any other issue at 573-341-HELP (4357).
