Per the University's 1.07 Records Retention Policy, Blackboard Learn academic courses created from the Student Information System (SIS) will remain on the Blackboard Learn System for 3 years after the semester has ended. At that point, a course level archive will be created and then the course deleted from the Blackboard Learn System. The archive will be stored for an additional 2 years.
What you need to do:
Nothing! All courses will be individually backed up before they are removed from the system and stored for an additional 2 years as part of the Records Retention Policy. If you would like to backup your own courses, please complete both of the following steps:
If you need copies of your work and do not have a local copy on your device(s), you should download any submitted files or content needed from your available courses when the semester is completed. If you do not have access to a course, please contact the Instructor of the course. Instructors control the availability of their Blackboard Learn courses.
