Winter 2016 eLearn Course Archive and Deletion

Chemeketa Online has a regular process to remove older courses from the eLearn server by maintaining just five terms of available courses on the system. On the morning of Tuesday, March 28, 2017, courses from Winter 2016 will be deleted from eLearn. You will no longer be able to access these courses through your eLearn course list. All courses will have been archived prior to deletion. Development shells will not be affected. If you wish to keep material from W16 on the eLearn server, you must request a development shell to be based on that content. You can request a development shell at http://techhub.chemeketa.edu/support/request-forms/ If more than five terms will elapse before you need to use a course again, or if you plan to make major edits to a shell that contains student work and grade history, you should create an archive copy of the course to be stored on your computer. An archived course can be restored to an empty eLearn shell at any time. Full instructions for creating an archive copy of a course are available at http://connect.chemeketa.edu/bb9tutcoursearchive/ (Note that it is not necessary to archive every course. In the event of a grade challenge or similar emergency, any deleted course can be restored from our archives even if you have not made your own copy.) Please contact us with any questions by calling 503.399.7399 Option 1, or via email: online@chemeketa.edu .
