UTPA Faculty, Staff and Students

On Friday June 13th at roughly around 9:00AM the University IT department put out a service announcement about an unplanned outage with the myUTPA portal found at http://my.utpa.edu.

During this period of time, several students were not able to login to Blackboard because of issues with their Active Directory credentials that are used when logging in to Blackboard directly.

Students who are experiencing these login issues are instructed to contact the IT HelpDesk  (956 665 2020) to resolve the password issues related to their active directory accounts. It is worth noting that the issues are not with Blackboard but with the users’ Active Directory accounts.

As of 1:30pm, the my.utpa.edu portal was fully operational and students were able to login to Blackboard in the conventional way.

 

COLTT would like to notify you that the UTPA Blackboard Learn learning management system will undergo required maintenance. The Blackboard Learn platform will be unavailable, Monday, May 26, 2014 from 1:00am – 3:00am CDT. 

We ask that faculty make the appropriate modifications to any development, assignment, assessments or student activities that may have been scheduled during this time.
