Starting at 8 p.m. on December 23, 2017, Blackboard will be down for approximately 12 hours. During this time, Blackboard engineers will apply a cumulative patch to the system. The purpose of this patch is due to end of life of the service Crocodoc, which is the current inline grading tool for assignments. After the patch is applied, the inline grading tool, Crocodoc, will become Box View. Box View will function the same as Crocodoc, but allow more files types to be submitted. Documentation is available on the Blackboard Support webpage.
