What happens to Blackboard courses at the end of the academic year?

Courses on Blackboard remain fully accessible to staff after they have finished. They will also be available to students while they remain a student at the University and can be referred to as a learning archive.

You should always leave courses from previous academic years available to students, so they can re-visit study materials and see their online assignment feedback.

You can organise your courses by academic year by editing the Course block on the Enrolments tab and using  the ‘Group by term’ function.

Note: As part of the preparation for the next academic year, Blackboard courses that are running again in the next academic year, are copied to new courses (with new course codes) for the coming academic year. See details about the Annual Course Rollover.
