For many Blackboard users, the system modules (e.g., Announcement, My Courses, To Do, etc.) do not load, and continue to reflect the message, “Please wait while the module loads.” The suggested workaround at this time is to log into, and under “Courses & Grades,” select the link directly into the course within Blackboard. This link will take the user directly into that specific course shell where they can access assignments and other sections of their curriculum. KU IT support staff are working to resolve the problems and will provide more information as it becomes available.
