Blackboard Fall 2020 Upgrade December Update Announcement for Faculty

Dear Colleagues:

As many of you are already aware, CUNY CIS upgrades Blackboard once a year, in December. The Blackboard upgrade is currently scheduled to begin on Sunday, December 27, at 12:30 am and is expected to be completed by the close of business on Monday, December 28. Blackboard will be taken offline, and there will be no access to the environment during the upgrade. The final exam and grade submission periods will have concluded CUNY-wide prior to the downtime.

This upgrade is a maintenance release and will not introduce new functionality into Blackboard. Additionally, Blackboard course shells for Winter Intersession and Spring 2021 courses were created in early November and are available to faculty. If you do not see your upcoming courses after accessing Blackboard, please check your course assignments in CUNYfirst and have your department reach out to the Registrar to make any needed updates to course assignments.

Please contact Hunter’s Blackboard Support team at for assistance or with any questions or concerns you may have.

Thank you,

Victoria Kudritskiy
Blackboard Administrator
