Remove Course



Courses can be removed from Blackboard Learning System through the Remove Course page. Courses that are removed cannot be restored to the Blackboard Learning System unless the course was archived or exported prior to removing it.


Keep in mind that archiving a course will preserve not only course content but also user enrollments and interactions with the course. For information on archiving a course prior to removing it from Blackboard Learning System, see the Archive Course topic. Exporting a course will only preserve the content in the course. For more information, see the Export Coursetopic.

The Remove Course page contains a search function at the top of the page. The following search tabs are available:

Step 1   Select the Course ID, Instructor, or Title/Description option.


Step 2   In the text field, enter a Course ID, an Instructor name, or a string that appears in the Title or Description of the course. If this field is left blank, courses will be filtered only by the date created.


Step 3   Select the All Courses, Month, or Day option to define the list based on when courses were created (If Month is selected, courses that are returned will have been created in the previous 30 days. If Day is selected, courses that are returned will have been created in the last 24 hours).

Step 4   The search function will create a list of courses according to the search criteria. Courses will appear in a table format with each course listed in a separate row.
