Welcome to the Blackboard e-Education platform—designed to enable educational innovations everywhere by connecting people and technology.
Faculty, on August 15, IT will purge courses that are more than four years old as of the prior December. So, on August 15, 2015, we will purge courses from the Fall 2011 semester and earlier. This means that all courses prior to Fall 2011 will be permanently deleted from Blackboard. We are establishing a precedent and will continue with an annual purge on August 15th of data (courses) older than four (4) years of every year from this year forward. Development and template shells are never deleted.
It is recommended that all faculty export their courses to a personal area such as your H Drive, your department’s S drive, desktop, DropBox, Google Drive, or other external drive of your choice before August 15th. Please click this link for instructions to export a course.
