Old Blackboard Courses Scheduled for Deletion


Beginning Monday, March 13 (the week of Spring Break) Faculty Technology Services will commence deleting courses older than 4 years from our Blackboard Learn environment.  This improvement will reduce the number of old courses appearing on “My Courses” list in Blackboard, as well as enhance the functionality of the system.   Blackboard Logo

Courses from Fall 2013 to the present will remain. However, all course shells from before Fall 2013 will also be deleted.

If you are fine with your pre-2013 courses being deleted, you do not have to do anything. If you would like to keep a copy of your information from pre-Fall 2013 courses, however, you can do so by either archiving or exporting your course.  Please find a full explanation of how to archive or export your courses (including video instructions) here.

Please also refer to this FAQ on the matter. If you have any technical questions, please contact the Faculty Technology Services staff at blackboard@fordham.edu.

If you have any questions or concerns about this policy, please feel free to reach out directly to Alan Cafferkey, Director of Faculty Technology Services.
