Message from Connie Broughton:
WAOL staff are working on the fifth case this week where an instructor copied an empty Spring classroom into their active Winter classroom and lost everything.
Only one instructor had done a backup, and we were able to restore content and student work. We found a backup done during import for one other, and the others lost student work and grades–not good news for anyone at the end of the quarter.
Please remind your faculty to back up frequently and especially before they attempt a course copy. It is also safer to copy out of a Master classroom rather than a quarterly classroom.
Mistakes are easy to fix if the instructor has done a recent backup. I’m attaching a tutorial that will be useful for your faculty. Click here: Backing Up Your ANGEL Class
