DE Contingency Plan

As with any technology, Blackboard and other Internet based course delivery systems have the potential for technical problems. To prepare for potential problems and/or downtime, we strongly advise all instructors using Blackboard or other Internet based course delivery systems to have a contingency plan when the technology is not available. A contingency plan involves anticipating and planning for an alternate delivery of course material and communication when a service interruption occurs.  Your contingency plan should appear on your course syllabus so that students know their responsibilities and what to expect in a downtime situation.
