Please accept our apologies for the problems accessing your modules. We’ve temporarily enabled the default Blackboard module and organisation lists so you can all get working again. We are continuing to work with the vendor to resolve the issue.
We have temporarily enabled the default Blackboard Module and Org lists so that you can continue working.
Users will not be able to access modules or organisations on either the Learn or Teach tab on Minerva at the moment. We are working with the vendor to resolve this as soon as possible. Please accept our sincere apologies for this unscheduled loss in service.
Blackboard Collaborate has introduced gallery view, which enables the moderator to see up to 25 videos at one time. It has a zoom control that can be used to reduce or increase the number of videos visible.
There is also the choice of tiled view or speaker view, which puts greater emphasis on the person speaking.
Gallery view is currently only available to moderators, but will be extended to participants later this year. Make sure that you are using a fully supported browser such as Google Chrome or Edge Chromium (Safari and Firefox do not support gallery view at present).
After the Minerva upgrade, some users may have experienced login issues from 18:45 on Saturday 27th March. The problem was an intermittent issue which the vendor resolved at 18:45 on the 28th March. Apologies for the inconvenience caused.
Due to essential maintenance, we are planning to upgrade Minerva. To reduce the impact on staff and students, the work will take place over a weekend. The work is planned to take place from 18:00 on Friday, 26th March until late Saturday, 27th March.
During this maintenance Minerva will not be available and you won’t have access to content. Access to other University systems, such as Outlook, OneDrive and Student/Faculty Services, will be unaffected.
Scheduled for 19 March 2021 at 22:00 GMT, expected to last 1 hour.
Our vendor will be performing maintenance work on the MyTimetable hosting platform which provides your timetable view. During the maintenance window your timetable may be unavailable for about 10 minutes.
