The outage came just days after the site was declared ‘stable’ and was scheduled to move out of its ‘test phase’ tomorrow.

It is yet to be confirmed whether the move will go ahead on Monday, and The Linc understands that today’s incident is separate from previous issues with the site.

In a statement, a university spokesperson said: “The University’s ICT Team are investigating a technical issue that occurred with Blackboard this morning. Further updates will be provided as soon as they are available.”

Update: In a further statement, a university spokesperson has told The Linc that Blackboard is ‘back up and running normally now’ following technical issues earlier today.

They said: “The outage was unrelated to the technical issues experienced last week which have now been resolved. Blackboard will move out of its test phase as planned on Monday.

“We are grateful to staff and students, particularly our Students Union, for their continued patience and support.”
