TTU Blackboard Course Implemented Archival and Restoration Policies
Blackboard Learn 9.1
(Current version of Blackboard)
Blackboard Learn 9.1 courses can be archived from the "live" Blackboard server one year after the end of the semester in which it is taught per the TTU Blackboard Archival Policy (i.e. a Fall 2013 course would become eligible for archival on December 31, 2014.) Archived course content can be restored to Blackboard Learn 9.1 with approval from the requestor's department. Please see the Restoration Instructions below for more information. Faculty members and instructors who wish to request an exception to the archival policy for a specific course may work with their college's designee to initiate the exception request.
