REMINDER: Blackboard Course Archive Announcement!

As a part of our new archiving policy, the Office of Online Learning and Educational Technology is preparing to archive Blackboard courses from the following terms:
  • 2016: Fall
  • 2017: Spring, Summer & Fall
  • 2018: Spring, Summer & Fall
  • 2019: Spring & Summer

This process will take place on Oct. 14, 2020. It is important to archive courses for many reasons, including reducing storage costs, system maintenance and performance, and administrative improvements. OOLET will be archiving all courses from the terms listed above and a copy of every course will be stored locally. While you can request a course to be unarchived, it would be easiest and most helpful if you could archive any course that contains materials you would like to save for future use. Press here for directions on how to archive a course.

Moving forward, OOLET will be performing 3 archives a year, approximately 10 days after the last day of finals. Note that one academic year of courses will always be kept available within Blackboard, and an announcement will be made prior to each archive.

If you would like assistance with archiving any courses for your personal access, or have any additional questions or concerns, please contact OOLET by submitting a ticket to the Help Desk.

Thank you!
