Please download an archive and Grade Center file from each spring 2016 course you taught before they are permanently deleted from Blackboard on Friday April 7th at 8:00 AM (Central).
- How to Archive Your Course
- How to Download Your Grade Center as an Excel file
- How to Print Grade Reports (optional)
Remember, courses that were offered in the spring of 2016 will have Blackboard IDs that begin with SP2016.
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.
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!
Please urge your students to complete a course evaluation for your course. Students have received an email with a link to the evaluation, and they have a Take Survey button on the homepage of the Blackboard site for your course. The evaluations remain open until midnight on March 21st.
