Accessing information in Archived Teams


This article has not yet been rated.

Archiving a team removes the team from your “Active Teams” list and freezes team activity.  Content such as quizzes and Class Notebook items can be reused whether it’s from an archived class or not.

All content associated with the team will still be saved but, in order to access  files, conversations and grades you will need to follow these directions on Retrieving Archieved Teams



Notebook Content

Creating an Assignment from an Archived Team

Class Notebook

These instructions will only apply when accessing the Class Notebook for the first time.
