At Avans University of Applied Sciences we have been using Blackboard since 2001. Every year our system was upgraded but we never performed a proper clean-up. As a result our system was filled with lots of orphaned courses and corrupted data which lead to instability.

To make our Blackboard environment reliable again we decided to perform a big clean-up and a fresh installation of Learn.

In this session we will talk about our approach to get from our old environment to a new one without disturbing the education process at our institution. We will also share the results and aftercare activities of this project. Finally we will give the outlines of the plans we have to keep our environment clean for the years to come. This session can be helpful for both self-hosted as managed hosted clients.
