Upcoming ANGEL Archive

As outlined in the NSCC ANGEL Course Archive Policy, Academic Technology is in the process of archiving older ANGEL course sites and removing them from the ANGEL server.  We wanted to provide the NSCC community with advanced notice before any course sites are deleted from the ANGEL server. 

Below is an outline of the timeline for deleting courses from the ANGEL server as well as from the archive.
  • Course sites from Summer 2013 - Will be removed from the ANGEL server and placed in archive on October 1, 2014. Summer 2013 courses are scheduled to be permanently deleted from archive on February 1, 2018.
  • Course sites from Spring 2010 - Will be permanently deleted from the archive on October 1, 2014.
If faculty would like to retain these course sites for a longer period of time, they have the option of generating their own archive and there are several available options for storage, including:

  • The P: Drive network folder (only accessible on campus)
  • Google Drive, accessible through the NSCC email account
  • A personal storage medium, i.e. USB drive, portable hard disk, computer, CD
  • External cloud storage solutions, available at little to no cost (such as Dropbox or SkyDrive)
Directions for generating a course archive (content and student data) are available at: http://goo.gl/jpO5R.  Staff members from Instructional Technology and Design will be available to assist faculty in archiving ANGEL course sites.  If assistance is needed, please email the ANGEL Helpdesk at angel@northshore.edu.

If you have any questions about this, please do not hesitate to contact us at itd@northshore.edu.
