Teaching with Blackboard

About Blackboard

Blackboard™ is a course management system used campus-wide at NIU. The system allows faculty to post materials, deliver tests and surveys, hold online discussion and many other course-related functions. All currently-enrolled students and teaching faculty have access to the Blackboard system. We are running Blackboard version 9.1, April 2014 Release, having upgraded the system May 25, 2015.

Blackboard Notifications Issue

Posted: 9/23/15

Due to a server processing issue, Push Notifications that were scheduled to be delivered between the dates of 8/28/2015 and 9/20/2015 were not delivered. The issue was resolved on 9/21/2015 and all queued up notifications were finally delivered.

Emails sent from Blackboard courses or Announcements (where the instructor specified that an email be delivered) were not affected.

If you have any questions about this or any related issue, please contact the DoIT Helpdesk at helpdesk@niu.edu or 753-8100.
