Course Lifecycle Procedure

Due to a new Course Lifecycle Procedure approved by FTAG and limited space on the Blackboard file system, courses that have not been modified in 2.5 years will be archived. 

If your course is archived and you find that you need the information in the course in the future, it can be restored for you, but please be aware that the process may take 5 to 7 business days. We do not anticipate this affecting many constituents since the courses marked to be archived have not been used or accessed in over 2.5 years, but we wish to make every effort to preserve the files that are important to Blackboard users.

If you are still using these courses, or would like to request a course be restored, please contact the OIT Service Desk or bbsupport@ohio.edu and specify the course ID, the instructor's OHIO ID, and the term of the course in the request.
