eClass Scheduled Course Archiving 2020
Posted by Chris Goetz on 12 May 2020 12:06 PM

Attention eClass users,

We have an important announcement that may impact your older credit courses on eClass.

The annual scheduled archiving of credit courses for this year has been planned for May 27th, 2020. This process, described in more detail here, mandates that credit courses can only remain on eClass for a maximum duration of four years. Non-credit courses including sandboxes, content development templates, research/collaboration courses, and eClass External courses are not affected by this process.

On May 27th 2020, credit courses that are more than four years old will be archived off of eClass. These courses will no longer appear in a user’s course list and instructors will no longer be able to directly copy content from these courses forward into new courses. Instructors will be able to request a course be restored from the archive by contacting eClass support. Another option for instructors or students who wish to have personal copies of the content from these older courses is to copy the content from these courses manually.

The timeline and schedule below describe this process.
