Blackboard (Faculty): Frequently Asked Questions

Should I make an archive copy of my Blackboard website? How do I do it?
Once your course website is two years old, it is due to be purged from the system soon. The Blackboard Support Group will notify you before this is done. Prior to the site being removed, you may want to download an archive copy of the website in case you need to get it back.

To make an archive copy of your Blackboard website, follow these steps:
  1. Go to your course website's Control Panel.
  2. Click Archive Course.
  3. Click the Archive button.
  4. Click Submit.
    Note: The archive process may take a bit of time. Blackboard should email you when the archive is ready to download.
  5. Return to the Archive Course menu.
  6. Click the file link for your course archive. The filename should contain the course ID and the date and time (e.g., ArchiveFile_COM10101SBW08_20080307021749.zip).
  7. Save the file to your computer or other backup media for storage.
