Blackboard Housekeeping over Fall Break

Faculty, please note that courses and enrollments for all regular SPRING 2008 academic courses in Banner will begin to appear on your Blackboard course lists after break. As usual, these sites will be available to you as instructor but unavailable to students until you activate them (Control Panel > Settings > Course Availability.)

Meanwhile, regular academic courses from SPRING 2006, and Honors courses from FALL 2005 will be archived and removed from Blackboard. SPRING 2006 Honors courses will remain an additional semester to ensure their availability to seniors studying for Honors exams. An archive of each course will be formed by ITS, and can be used to restore the course in future semesters upon request.

NOTE: Instructors may wish to form additional archives of individual items or course sites (Control Panel > Archive Course).

EXEMPTIONS/RESTORATIONS: If any of your SPRING 2006 or FALL 2005 Honors courses should not be retired from Blackboard, or if your course is removed, and you want to bring it back, please contact Liz Evans (eevans1, x 8254.)

Please direct any questions or requests to your usual Blackboard Support person.
