Last Spring 2013 Blackboard Courses to Be Deleted at End of February

Previous Spring 2013 Blackboard course shells will be removed from Blackboard starting  Feb. 28th, 2014 at 8:00 AM!

If you have not already done so, please remember to archive your courses from the Spring of 2013 and save a copy of your Grade Center before these files are permanently removed from Blackboard.  Doing so will provide you with a copy of your course materials and grade center information which you can save offline for future reference.

This only impacts courses taught in the Spring of 2013. Personal Masters, Department Masters, and organizations will not be removed.

** PLEASE NOTE! **

Due to the changes in username formats, servers, and service packs that have happened since June 2013, requests for course archives may be time-consuming and  restorations may be unsuccessful. Downloading an archive of your courses and grade centers NOW ensures that you will have easy access to them LATER.
