Archiving Policy
UOM Main Page
Lecture Capture Pilot

Every year, in December, all study-unit areas pertaining to the last ended academic year, will be archived. The archived study-unit areas will remain accessible by tutors and current students for five (5) academic years.

An example scenario of the archiving process is illustrated below.

UM Archiving Policy

Tutors are able to access and amend any material in the archived study-unit areas of the previous academic year. Older study-unit areas are set to read-only, that is no further changes can be made to the areas. Students are not able to make further contributions, such as forum posts, assignment submissions etc. to all archived study-unit areas.

Tutors can use the VLE Copy Tool to copy the study material between different areas. The tool copies all the files, resources and activities that the tutors have set up for students, except for any submissions made by students, such as assignments, forum posts etc. More information about the VLE Copy Tool is available.


From where can I access archived study-unit areas?

Archived study-unit areas will remain accessible to tutors and students for revision purposes etc, as follows:

  • Study-unit areas for 2015/16, 2016/17, 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20 etc will remain accessible from the UM VLE.
  • Study-unit areas for 2014/15 remain accessible from the Archives & Other VLEs page.
