Archiving Your Blackboard Course

Per the announcement at the bottom of the page (5/12/20), ITaP will be archiving all Blackboard gradebook information.

ICaP strongly recommends that you also keep a copy of your gradebook information. Purdue will have a copy of your gradebook, and you should, too.

Announcement from ITaP

A new process has been developed to automatically archive all West Lafayette student data in Blackboard before access to the learning management system ends in August.

The process eliminates the need for faculty to archive their own student data. Instead, all gradebook data currently in Blackboard will be stored securely by ITaP, and faculty or researchers will still be able to access it after the switch to the D2L Brightspace learning management system takes place this fall. Faculty can request that information as needed for grade appeals or research purposes by contacting

Previously published guidelines and instructions for storing Blackboard student data are no longer necessary, as the data will be automatically archived.
