Improving Bb Availability and Reliability through Managed Hosting
In an effort to provide a more stable and reliable Bb experience for students and faculty, Blackboard has agreed to host our environment. Ball State will join over a hundred other universities to host Bb services at the company’s facility. Our contract stipulates 99.9% uptime and dedicated support staff. The hosting facility has state of the art networking, hardware, and security. Ball State will maintain control over the timing of upgrades and the installation of any building blocks that add functionality, i.e. Pearson MyLabs, NBC Learn etc. User experience to Bb will remain the same. All existing course content will be preserved in a more robust environment.
