The Great Purge starts next week

Etudes Purging & Archiving Old Sites starting July 4th
purge-maskedkillers-outside-fullNo, it’s not quite like the movie “The Purge” but starting next July 4th, Etudes will begin purging and archiving old Etudes course sites.

What will we do on July 4?

  • Keep all of 2014 and 2015 sites “live” on, including student records.
  • Archive all 2013 sites. [2012 sites were archived last year and will remain in archives for another year].
  • Purge 2013 live sites. They will no longer be accessible, but you will be able to import their content for a year.
  • Purge 2011 sites from archives. 2011 sites will no longer be available in any form.

How can you preserve the content of a course site from 2011 that’s scheduled to be purged?

If a course is older than three and a half years and is scheduled to be purged in July, you can request a development site and import its content into it to preserve it permanently. Dev Site Request:

How can you back up student records from old course sites before they get archived?

If you would like to retain student grades, course activity, or assignment submissions from old term sites, you can download the relevant spreadsheet reports from the Gradebook, Activity Meter, and AT&S.
