Remember to Perform the Blackboard End of Semester Process

download-imgAt the end of each semester, instructors teaching within Blackboard  must perform a series of tasks called the End of the Semester Process. This process is helpful for preserving a full record of an instructor’s Blackboard course content, Grade Center, and student work in an archive file.

PLEASE NOTE!

  • It is the instructor’s responsibility to archive each of the courses they have taught so that content and grade information can be accessed at a later date!
  • Due to the scheduled maintenance upgrade at the end of December, Blackboard will be unavailable to faculty and students from December 30th through January 1st.  Blackboard will become available again on January 2nd (unless otherwise communicated).

If you have any questions about performing the tasks in this process, please attend any of our upcoming End of the Semester Process Workshops.
