Blackboard Clean Up

Beginning July 15, the Center for Instructional Technology will remove old course content from the Blackboard Learn system. This is accordance with UA’s LMS Course Retention Policy, which states that materials more than two years old will be removed from the system. Students and instructors should save any materials they wish to keep.

How to Back Up Blackboard Content – Students
At the end of each semester, students should save anything they may want to keep. Courses will be made unavailable according to the LMS retention policy but can also be made unavailable by the instructor any time after a course is completed. Visit the CIT website for guidance on how students can back up Blackboard content.

How to Back Up Blackboard Content – Instructors
Instructors have several options for backing up content or copying content into another course. More information about each of these options is available on the CIT website.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact CIT at 205-348-3532 or
