Ohio University

Course Retention Policy: Blackboard Learn

Blackboard Learn courses listed by the university registrar in the course offerings will be archived 2 years after the published course end date. Unlisted courses and organizations that have not been modified for 2.5 years may be subject to ad hoc archival procedures. Once a course has been archived, it will no longer be visible in your list of courses.

To request the restoration of an archived course, a current Ohio University faculty/staff member enrolled as an instructor in the course may contact the IT Service Desk with the following information:

  • Course ID (at minimum: prefix and catalog number)
  • Term and academic year
  • Instructor's OHIO ID

Please allow 5 to 7 business days for your request to be processed.
