The Blackboard Section purge process will be executed biannually every January and June. Blackboard section content will be available in the production system for faculty use for a duration of two years. Section data more than two years old, calculated by the start of the current semester, will be removed from the production system. Faculty will be sent a reminder regarding the biannual purge process no less than 30 days prior to the date of the purge. This notification will provide faculty time to export Grade Book and any other pertinent section data prior to the purge, if necessary.
To learn how to export the grade book go to Article 94: Working Offline with the Grade Center
Your export file can only be used in another Blackboard Learn System. You can not open and extract individual content from it. If you want to import it into another system/course use the instructions below.
