Blackboard Team Meeting – February 11

Present: No Face to Face Meeting this Week

Primary work:

  1. Blackboard 9
  2. Starfish Deployment
  3. Relay Upgrade
  4. Xythos Drive

Need updates on:

  1. Load Balancer
  2. Gradebook Integration

Agenda Topics:

  1. Server Restarts at 4AM – Do we still need to do this? Discussion on this topic. We plan to ask Blackboard about this as a best practice – Szymon will file a ticket. Eric will post a question on the listerv.
  2. Automation – Student drop after count date this is currently not working as a result of the combined section work.  William Frikken and Peggy Gorno will be included in an email to solve this situation.
  3. Automation – Removing instructor assignments upon schedule changes.  Same as above.
  4. Relay Server Upgrade – Risks, we don’t have a test system, therefore the upgrade may break.  If we had a development system than the risk would be smaller – we have customizations that come into play.  Can we back up Relay before the upgrade to ensure we can revert back?  We will ask for a backup of Relay and so that we can quickly restore it if necessary.  Peggy Gorno and Donovan Wallace will be asked.  We also need a development system, this will also be asked.
  5. Bb9 – Still working on refresh process. Work will ensue tomorrow.
  6. Starfish – Same as above.
  7. Automation – Tutorial labs and orientation sites and department organization sites.  Eric will send Szymon a list.
  8. Faculty Support System – We need a system to support working with faculty how to questions submitted through email.
