The Spring 2013 semester is almost over! What happens to your Blackboard courses? What should you do to properly wrap up your courses? Read below for more information on the iTeam’s recommendations for archiving current courses and requesting future courses.
- In or around mid-June, students will no longer see your Spring 2013 Blackboard courses as long as Availability is set to Term Availability. To double-check this setting, go to Control Panel > Customization > Properties > Availability.
