In Cloud We Trust

Cloud over Blackboard Ya gotta feel sorry for Blackboard (but not very much). After all the fuss about upgrading to Bb9, apparently, it's not going to happen because a "significant" issue has been discovered. Significant eh? What's the p-value and how many degrees of freedom? ;-)

Moving to Blackboard version 9 at this time would present an unacceptable risk to the University's Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) given the proximity of the new academic year. In addition, Blackboard themselves are unable to give any guarantees as to when a fix for the reported issue could be made available.

Remind me again - how much are we paying them each year? Sigh, when will people learn?
