News: Learning Portal Upgrade May 11 & 12, 2012

A quick note from Jeremy Graham regarding the upgrade to our Learning Portal on May 11 and 12, 2012.
_______________________

Hi All. Just a reminder that our scheduled upgrade of the Blackboard Learn software that underlies the Portal will commence just shortly after midnight tonight. We will be out of service for the duration, and expect to be finished work by Saturday afternoon (the 12th).

Any significant progress updates will be posted at:

(which is also linked on our documentation and help site at http://www.portalinfo.utoronto.ca).

Best,
Jeremy
