Fix Implemented: UA Blackboard (4/26/23)

Blackboard has implemented a fix to the recent challenges with accessing UA Blackboard. Due to the nature of the fix, it will take time for some Internet Service Providers to receive the updates. In some cases this may take a few hours. If you're currently having problems accessing Blackboard, you can try again later or connect to the UAS VPN for immediate access. As always, please feel free to contact the Helpdesk.
