BLACKBOARD BACK-UP CHECKLIST

Have you backed up lately?  Even though Blackboard, Inc. backs up the Blackboard system, why take chances?  Also, you may wish to back up before an announced purge if you want to keep an old course site for your records or reuse. Back up your Blackboard files as shown below.  (Click the links to view or print instructions.) Backing up takes only a couple of minutes--or less.  If you have trouble backing up, drop by CETLA for hands-on help during the Open Lab hours posted on our calendar at http://www.cetla.howard.edu/workshops/calendars.html.
