 Best Practice for Saving Your Work 

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 the changes in username formats, servers, and service packs that have happened since June of 2013,  requests for old 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!

On Friday Feb. 28th, 2014,  Blackboard courses from Spring 2013 (SP2013)  will be removed – beginning 8 AM CST.

Doing so will provide you with a copy of your course materials and grade center information which you can save offline for future reference.

How to Prepare Your Courses for the End of the Semester
