Maintenance on Blackboard Collaborate, August 23, 2017


Posted on

Blackboard Collaborate, our third party integration for web conferencing in Fronter, need to perform an emergency maintenance on August 23, 2017 for the European and Australian customers. The maintenance contains performance improvements and new bandwidth levels to help with Application Sharing blurriness.

The times are

  • Europe: Wednesday, August 23, 2017 from 12:00 Midnight CEST (Central European Summer Time) UTC/GMT +2 hours to Wednesday, August 23, 2017 2:00 AM CEST (Central European Summer Time) UTC/GMT +2 hours
  • Australia: Wednesday, August 23, 2017 from 2:00 AM AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time) UTC/GMT +10 hours to Wednesday, August 23, 2017 4:00 AM AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time) UTC/GMT +10 hours

The Blackboard services will be intermittent unavailable during this maintenance window.

What does this mean for me as a Fronter user?

In Fronter, only the tools ClassLive and Meeting are affected. During the above mentioned times you can experience unavailability for the two tools.
Please note that no other tools or functionality within Fronter are affected.
