Archiving and Restoring Course Teams Sites

From EdTech Help

Archiving Teams Course sites

Archiving Teams course sites happens automatically at the end of the Term.

Instructors will continue to have access to course delivery materials in their course ‘teams’ sites within MS Teams, but will experience the site going into archival mode 15 days after the course is completed. Courses will not be removed from instructors’ MS Teams accounts after 30 days as they are with student access.

Instructors interested in extending the default archival and expiry dates of the course ‘teams’ sites can request a change by emailing the Centre for Pedagogical Innovation at
