Sunday Maintenance Reminder

Every Sunday from 12am until 12pm all Systems (e-mail, Banner, wireless, etc.) will be intermittently unavailable while important maintenance and updates are performed.

Weekly Maintenance – Reminder            

Please log off your computer when leaving for the day every Thursday, but do not power it off.  This will allow updates to be sent down to your computer on Friday after 12:00am.  If you turn your computer off and leave it off overnight on Thursday, shortly after turning it back on, your computer will restart in order to install and apply any updates. If you leave your computer logged in Thursday night into Friday, you may lose any unsaved data you were working on when the computer restarts.

Blackboard Learn Training

Due to the snow cancellations and delays, you may want to consider using Bb Learn to supplement your classes. We invite you to attend a training session or peruse the online tutorials in the Organizations@ccsu tab in Bb Learn.  If you do not see a training session that meets your needs, please email to schedule an individual training session.

Are you ready to start building your Blackboard Learn grade center to produce a final grade?  We are offering training sessions focused on this very topic.

Classroom Computer Issue -  Frozen With Black Screen

Currently there is an issue affecting computers in the classroom where the system is frozen on a black screen.  Information Technology is testing a solution and hopes to have a permanent solution soon.  Until that time, the issue can be resolved by “hard rebooting” the workstation.  This is done by holding the power button down until the machine shuts off, waiting 5 seconds and then powering the machine on again.
