Archiving

Your University LMS website will be archived 6 weeks after the end of the academic session.

All University LMS websites are archived to maintain the integrity of student information such as assignments, discussion postings, and student activity. LMS websites are stored for several years as required by the Academic Board.

You can retrieve an archived website at any time if you wish to access any materials or student information that is contained in the site.

You can view your list of archived websites in SEAMS by choosing 'Archived websites', and to check the Access Start and Access End dates for your website. To restore your archived websites, please contact the Sydney eLearning Helpdesk.

Websites are restored on a temporary basis, either with or without student access to the UoS website.
