There are maintenance updates to around a dozen Blackboard Learn building blocks to be installed.  We will also enable some new functionality (the Partner Cloud, Social Profiles and Tools and xpLor Connector building blocks).  Lastly, we will be removing some old building blocks which are no longer in use, such as Blackboard Sync, Learning Objects, and Elluminate Live!

Affected customers

All users of UAF Blackboard Learn could be affected.

Please note

This time is coincident with the weekly backup outage; there should be no additional outage while building blocks are updated.
