In accordance with the Blackboard Course Retention Policy, all Blackboard courses older than Fall 2007 will be deleted. DoIT has scheduled this removal for Friday, August 23, 2013.
Instructors are encouraged to download and keep a copy of the Grade Center for any affected courses. Instructors may also archive an entire course, and keep a local copy for their records. Be aware though that only DoIT system administrators can "restore" an archived course on the UMBC Blackboard production server.
