Maintenance Ephorus 27 and 28 December and implications for Blackboard

On Saturday 27 and Sunday 28 December the Ephorus functions (plagiarism detection) within Blackboard can't be used due to maintenance of the vendor of Ephorus.

For students this means that they can't submit Ephorus assignments (an Ephorus assignments can be recognized by an orange icon). It remains possible to submit a standard assignment (recognizable by an icon with a book).

For teachers this means:

you can't see previously submitted Ephorus assignments

you can't see existing plagiarism reports

you can't grade previously submitted Ephorus assignments

you can't create new Ephorus assignments

you can't edit existing Ephorus assignments.

Plagiarism control via the Ephorus website is also not possible on 27 and 28 December.
