Course Retention Policy

Objective

Information Technology Services (ITS) adheres to the approved course retention policy with the following objectives:

Overview

Why

Many faculty find it valuable to refer back to prior iterations of course materials in LATTE. At the same time, LATTE is not designed for unlimited course storage, and carrying materials over indefinitely can diminish the performance of the application and divert resources better used on current support and enhancements.

Who

All Brandeis University faculty/instructors who deliver courses in LATTE.

When

The Course Retention Policy went into effect on January 1, 2019.

Policy Highlights

The retention period is six academic terms, as many courses repeat every other year. Courses older than six terms are archived, after which they are recoverable for one additional year.
