Isaak-Sakai course sites to be deleted

From EdTech Help

We are once again undertaking the annual process of deleting Isaak-Sakai course sites that are older than 4 years.

This process is continuing to reduce Brock’s data footprint, maintain a records management process, and decrease the resources required to operate the system. This process is also being undertaken to limit legal discovery and freedom of information searches to a reasonable and standardized period and will limit the amount of personal information that could be exposed in the event of a privacy breach.

Older Isaak-Sakai course site content can easily be copied into newer sites or exported from key tools. The CPI is ready to help instructors retrieve, export, and copy all of their data. Contact edtech@brocku.ca for assistance.

Which academic terms are affected?

  • Course sites created on or before the Fall and Winter 2016 academic term (occurred at beginning of 2016 calendar year)
  • Course sites created on or before the 2017 Spring and 2017 Summer academic terms

These courses sites will display a FW2016, 2017 Spring, or 2017 Summer property when viewed in the Site Info tool.

How can I learn which of my course sites are queued for deletion?

Isaak-Sakai indexes your course sites based on the academic term that you selected when you created your site. Here are the steps to viewing a list of your sites to learn what is to be deleted:
