Requests for five or more course restorations (per faculty) in a single semester, must be requested by the Dean or equivalent.
Once the above requirements are met, someone from the Learning Systems team will contact the instructor to discuss the request and needs. Further investigation will be completed by Learning Systems to ensure that the requested courses are still available to be restored.
The VCU Blackboard Team archives courses throughout the year based on defined procedures and guidelines. Due to the time and resources involved in course recovery and restoration, the process could take a few weeks. The faculty is encouraged to archive their Blackboard courses at any time, which will help expedite the restoration process. Faculty archiving instructions are located in our askIT Knowledge Base.
