Blackboard courses from 2016 or earlier to be archived and removed

Dear Faculty,
 
We are in the process of reviewing our Blackboard Learn courses and organizations to reduce our overall storage quota.
  To help with this process, all academic courses from 2016 or earlier will be archived and removed from Blackboard starting on June 7. The archive process saves a full copy of the course, including student submissions and grades, which can be restored later if needed.
 
If you would like to make an archive of your Blackboard courses prior to June 7 for your own records
, you can do so following these steps. 
 
Moving forward, older courses will be archived and removed twice annually (after the Fall and Spring semesters have ended).  Faculty will be notified 30 days before the courses are archived.
 
If you need help with making your own archives,
please submit a ticket here.
 
Thank you,
Kaitlin Walsh
Teaching and Learning Center

ACTION REQUIRED:  ALL Blackboard Collaborate Recordings will be deleted after Sunday, June 6, 2021

Dear Faculty and Staff,
 
We are in the process of reviewing our Blackboard Collaborate recordings to reduce our overall storage quota.  If you used Collaborate at all since March of last year (many people started in Collaborate and migrated to Teams), please take a few minutes to log in to Collaborate and review your recordings.  See the links below for instructions on accessing Collaborate to review and clean up recordings.

 

Please download any recordings you would like to save by no later than Sunday, June 6.  You can save and share your downloaded recordings in Echo360, OneDrive or Microsoft Stream.  All recordings still in Collaborate after June 6 will be deleted.
 
Moving forward, recordings will be deleted twice annually (after the Fall and Spring semesters have ended).  You can continue to record in Collaborate, but please plan to download and save any recordings you would like to keep. 
 
If you need assistance with downloading and moving your Collaborate recordings,
please submit a ticket here.
 
If you no longer need any of your Collaborate recordings, you do not need to do anything, as your recordings will be deleted after June 6.
 
Thank you,
Kaitlin Walsh
Teaching and Learning Center
