|Buffalo State College can no longer reuse course sites because each course ID will contain the year, semester, and CRN(s). At the conclusion of each semester, faculty should:
Instructors should disable their ANGEL course sites at the end of each semeseter to prevent their students' ANGEL accounts from displaying, during subsequent semesters, or classes which have ended. Instructors will still have access to classes for one year after they have ended, per the time line in the ANGEL Guidelines.
Exporting a Gradebook:
Instructors should export their gradebook, since ANGEL course sites will be removed from the server one year after the course is taught, you should save a final copy of each course grade book in a location outside of ANGEL. Exporting your online grade books at the end of the semester allows you to keep a permanent record of grades outside of the ANGEL system. Exporting your gradebook will generate a .cvs file, viewable in Microsoft Excel, which contains the contents of the grade book for an ANGEL class.
Archiving a Course:
Instructors should archive their course within their personal LOR in ANGEL for this is a good place to store and work on content that you will be using across semesters. Files saved in your Personal LOR remain in your account, even when courses from past semesters are disabled or removed from the servers.
**If you have previously archived a course, you do not need to archive the entire course. You only need to archive new or edited content pieces**
Exporting a Course:
Instructors should export their course content, enrollment information, and student activity data for archival purposes. Courses on ANGEL will be archived and removed from the server one year following the end of the semester.
