Blackboard Connect system goes ‘live’ within days

UNCG is testing an improved emergency notification system for students, faculty and staff.

Blackboard Connect will be the new system. This system is scheduled to go “live” later this week – likely the morning of April 19. 18. (If there is a chance for severe weather, etc., the transition will be delayed until Monday, April 22.)

Every person who is already signed up for text message notifications – or is signing up for the first time – will receive one automatically generated text message when it goes live. The message will begin, “UNCG Alert: You are subscribed to receive text alerts….” This message will give you an option to unsubscribe. Do not unsubscribe, if you wish to receive alerts in the future. This one “introductory” text message will not be repeated. You may simply consider it a confirmation. You will not receive an “introductory” email – just this one text message (that is, if you are registered to receive text messages). More information is here. Additional information and contact information may be found at the UNCG Emergency Management web page and the Spartan Alert – Emergency Information web page. Or contact the Office of Emergency Management at 256-8632 or BeReady@uncg.edu.

Update: The system was originally (tentatively) scheduled to go live April 19. Due to potential bad weather that day, the date has been changed to April 18.
