Blackboard End of the Semester Process

End of the Semester Process

At the end of each semester, it is the instructor’s responsibility to perform this process. To review how to perform this process and assign final grades through Blackboard, see these tutorials and attend a workshop this December. Faculty may earn 1 CEU hour towards FQAS by attending!

If you have questions about these processes, contact a Blackboard Faculty Liaison for one-on-one assistance during their open lab hours or by appointment. See their schedule and contact information.

Blackboard Clean-Up: Archive Summer 2016 Courses before June 2nd

Summer 2016 Course's will be Deleted on June 2nd.

If you have not already done so as a part of the End of Semester Process, download an archive and Grade Center file from each summer 2016 course you taught before they are permanently deleted from Blackboard on Friday June 2nd at 8:00 AM (Central).

Remember, courses that were offered in the summer of 2016 will have Blackboard IDs that begin with SU2017.

Best Practices for Saving Courses

If you do not have a “master copy” of your course permanently stored on the Blackboard system,  please complete the Personal Master request form and import your archived course file into it for future use and revision.

Warning

Due to changes in username formats, hosting servers, and service packs, requests for old course archives may be time-consuming and restorations may be unsuccessful. Downloading an archive of your course and grade data NOW ensures that you will have easy access to them LATER!

If you have questions about this process, contact tltdept@matc.edu
