Archived Courses

Gain Access to archived Moodle courses that no longer appear in your dashboard

Last Updated: December 6th, 2023

Courses that you have taught in the past 5 terms remain in your list of courses under "My Courses".

Courses older than 5 terms are removed from your Moodle account but saved as a Moodle backup file in our OFFLINE archives. The saved backup is comprehensive and includes everything within the course (hidden and visible activities, assignments, quizzes and quiz attempts, grades, enrollments, uploaded files, activities, layout preferences, events, and even course access logs — the works!).

The college is legally required by Oregon State Archive Grade Records (166-450-0120) and Distance Education/Learning Records (166-450-0030) to maintain digital archives for 10 years. After 10 years, course archives will reach their "End of Life" and be irreversibly removed (no recovery possible) from all locations without instructor notification.

If you want access to a course in the archives, email the following information to

  • course name and CRN (if known)
  • year and term
  • instructor last name

Or complete our online form!

Please also let us know if you need student work and grades included. If you simply want to retrieve the course material, this is NOT necessary.

We will restore it and notify you. It will show up in your Hidden Courses on your Moodle Dashboard at the bottom as a link.
