A message from the Global Campus
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Blackboard Learn will be unavailable for up to 24 hours on Saturday, May 28, while Blackboard corporate technical support performs system upgrades. Maintenance on learn.uark.edu will begin at 5:30 a.m. that day.
This upgrade falls within the three-day window when students do not have classes – between the close of Summer Intersession, May 27, and the start of Summer First 5-week, 8-week, and 10-week sessions, May 31.
There will be slight changes to the Blackboard Learn environment including:
