Nexus 2011-12 Courses Scheduled for Deletion Summer 2017

March 2, 2017
Nexus

ITS retains LMS courses in Nexus on a rolling five (5) year basis from the end of the term a course is taught, as per the Learning Management System (LMS) Course Retention Policy (Feb 2017).

ITS will begin removal of course sites more than five (5) years old this Summer 2017 on July 11th, removing all courses ending prior to Fall term 2012 (i.e., Fall 2011, Winter 2012, Spring 2012 courses). Instructors may request that a course be exempt from deletion. The Director of Learning Technologies and Environments, Denise Snyder, handles exemptions on a case-by-case basis. Conversely, an instructor may request that a course be deleted sooner than five (5) years from the end of a course. All exemptions and requests for deletions should be sent to Denise Snyder at snyderd2@union.edu.

Deleting a course site from the LMS permanently removes it from the LMS system so that it is no longer accessible. When a course site is deleted it is automatically removed from a user’s course list. All materials stored in the course site are deleted. This includes all files, grades, assignments, quizzes, surveys, links and anything else associated with the course site that is stored in the LMS database and file system areas.

Instructors are responsible for backing up their own course materials at the end of each term. Retaining copies of the syllabus, electronic grade book and electronic student work is the sole responsibility of the instructor. Instructors should always download student work or make copies of the grade book prior to removal of material from the course. It is also recommended that instructors backup courses before they are scheduled for deletion by Information Technology Services. ITS will not automatically backup any course prior to deletion. Instructions on how to make copies of the grade book, as well as how to backup/restore a course site are provided at the ITS website (http://its.union.edu) under Nexus documentation.
