UWM D2L Course Site Cleanup - Spring 2013
The D2L Course Cleanup is an ongoing University of Wisconsin (UWS) system-wide initiative. All UWM D2L course sites from semesters prior to Fall 2009 will be deleted this summer. There is no backup and no way to restore them.
Instructors who need to save information from the course sites scheduled for deletion are required to do so prior to June 11, 2013.
No action is necessary if an instructor does not need to download course materials or student records. The obsolete course sites will be removed on schedule.
Instructors with unusual circumstances must contact the UWM Learning Technology Center (LTC@uwm.edu) prior to June 11, 2013 so that appropriate action can be taken before the course sites are deleted.
Annual Cleanup Timeframe
Our goal is to keep only course sites that are current, plus the previous 3 academic years.
Although the UW-System guidelines for retention of electronic records specify only a "current + 2 years" window for keeping D2L course sites, UWM intends to keep D2L course sites from the current academic year + the 3 previous academic years, due to our extended schedule for offering certain courses on a 3-year rotation.
