Q. what is people soft?

I saw an email that People Soft was going to be down on Saturday for maintenance. Does this involve access to Blackboard to submit assignments?

Answer

PeopleSoft is our student information system (name, address, class list, payments, etc.).  You probably know it as MyNWTC.  It creates files that Blackboard uses to determine who is a Blackboard users, what courses students are in and which instructors are teaching which courses.  

We get those files every 4 hours, so if any new demographic data is recorded while PeopleSoft is down then it will have to wait until the next 4 hour slot to get updated.  Should be little to no impact on Blackboard Learn.

Thank you for the question.
