A problem with Bb OWL requires immediate attention in advance of the winter 2012 term. Bb OWL will be unavailable during a 6-day outage starting at 1:00 PM on Friday, December 23 2011. Bb OWL will return to service on Wednesday, December 28 2011. Should you wish more information about the problem, see the Bb OWL Meltdown posting.
During this outage, Bb OWL will be re-created with only the courses running in the January term. No completed courses will be brought forward to this new instance of our LMS. However, the current Bb OWL will be given a new web address so access is available to members of the ILO Team. If you must have access to a completed course in 2012, send your section details to firstname.lastname@example.org asking to have it restored and it will be added as quickly as possible.
If you are using our new BbLearn system in the winter 2012 term, it will be available for course preparations continuously throughout the holiday period. If you are planning to use our new BbLearn system but haven’t submitted your course request, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible.
