FYI, this was circulated by a major university user, suggesting that execution is not all that rosy at BBBB:

"Dear Colleagues,

As many of you know, a large number of (U name) courses have been using the Blackboard system, which has given us all sorts of grief to date, preventing students from uploading projects and papers and from receiving instructions on various final projects. In this circumstance, I must urge that faculty be lenient and to exercise fair and lenient discretion in accepting materials past deadlines, and to use every means available to make sure students receive appropriate final instructions. Obviously, we can't always be sure who's late for what reason, but in this case a failure beyond our control really needs to be taken into account.

Due diligence is being applied to the Blackboard operation and obviously we will hope for much more effective service in future.

Many thanks.
[s]
Provost"
