Finals Virtual Walk-In Hours
Tuesday, May 17th 10:00 - 11:00 AM CST
The tools we use as a campus for recording videos including Zoom, YuJa, Blackboard Collaborate and Teams are not intended for long-term storage of these files. Due to increasing storage costs and FERPA-protected data risks, IT will be implementing a video recording file purge schedule, where files will be automatically deleted after a specified amount of time. Please see the KB article to read the schedule and details at: https://kb.ndsu.edu/118153.
If you want to keep files longer than the schedule allows, you will need to download them and save them in one of the long-term storage options at https://kb.ndsu.edu/102743. Please remember that FERPA rules prohibit us from reusing recorded classes in any subsequent term if any student names or data are included in the recording. We encourage deleting any videos that are no longer useful or contain FERPA-related information about students.
Purges coming in June
To address immediate storage costs and FERPA compliance, all YuJa proctored exam recordings that were created prior to May 14, 2022 will be deleted starting on June 20, 2022.
Rolling purges starting in September
The purge schedule that begins at the end of September will include these high level purges. See the full schedule/details at: https://kb.ndsu.edu/118153
- Zoom recordings will be deleted 9 months from creation on a rolling basis.
- YuJa Proctored Exam Recordings will be purged 6 months from creation on rolling basis.
- All other YuJa recordings that have not been viewed for one year will be purged on a rolling basis.
- Blackboard Collaborate recordings will be purged July 1 two years from year created. Example: July 1, 2023 recordings created July 1, 2020 – June 30, 2021 will be deleted.
In late 2021, Echo360 merged its products with Turning Technologies. The product suite will be known by its new brand called Echo360, so when you log in you see the new logo. For now, only the logo has changed, and you will still use your Turning account as you always have, using the Turning Account Registration link in Blackboard. Please know that you may see both names used in the interim until the full rebranding is complete.
