Short description

Make the Cengage Learning MindLinks building block available 


UAF Blackboard Learn (

Status 1

Emergency Maintenance 

Start day

Wednesday, 1-16-2013 Time: 05:00 pm 

Recovery day

Wednesday, 1-16-2013 Time: 05:30 pm 


30 minutes


We are going to re-enable the Cengage Learning MindLinks building block.  Theoretically, this should take no more than a few seconds and not interrupt any Blackboard users.  But if the MindLinks building block misbehaves (if it was the cause of the Grade Center problems yesterday) then one or both of the Blackboard Learn servers will need to be restarted.

Affected customers

Anyone using Blackboard during the Outage window.
Anyone taking a Quiz/Test may lose their attempt; if that happens, the attempt will need to be reset by their instructor.
