Always save private and restricted data, such as identifying information and grades, in a secure location, following University Information Security Policies.
Let your students know when the course will no longer be available for them.
Provide students with a link to these instructions on how to download submitted assignments they want to keep for their records.

It is a best practice to use a master template to create your course content and then copy to upcoming semesters, rather than copying from a previous semester. To request a master template for each of your courses, use the request form at http://helpdesk.missouristate.edu/services-blackboardtemplate.htm.
