MyMiami/Blackboard will be upgraded over winter break to add version 7.3, requiring an outage lasting from noon on Thursday, Jan. 1 until noon on Friday, Jan. 2.
The upgrade to Blackboard 7.3 will provide solutions to issues Miami faculty members are having with the current version. The new version will be compatible with Firefox 3.0 and will provide enhancements to the discussion board and content system.
During the outage, most non-Blackboard services normally accessed via myMiami, including e-email, BannerWeb, Kronos and others, will be available via links on a web page that will display when users attempt to access myMiami.
