How are Moodle (academic) courses created?
Academic courses and course enrollments are created automatically in Moodle through an integration between JICS (the Portal) and Moodle.
 New courses are generally added to Moodle after Advising week.

How are Moodle (academic) courses closed?
Courses are closed or made unavailable to students approximately 2 weeks after the close of the semester. Courses will remain intact and accessible to instructors.

How are Moodle (academic) courses archived/deleted?
Courses are archived by instance. Beloit Information Technology Services (BITS) creates a redirect from to the current Moodle instance shortly after commencement.  Once this is done, a link to the passing Moodle instance will be posted on the Moodle Archive page. BITS will keep two years of Moodle instances available for access: the current academic year and an archive of the previous academic year.
