What is the UB Learns Data Management policy?

Our goal is to keep UB Learns stable and equipped for growth. Removing old course data on the system helps meet that goal and makes space for new courses that demand increasingly complex and data-rich content.

Are there file size limitations/quotas for UB Learns course sites?

Currently UB Learns does not limit or impose a quota on file uploads. Instructors should upload only pertinent course materials for each site, and remove any files that are no longer needed.

For media files, such as sound and video, follow the instructions on Audio/Video Content.

Can individuals who are not affiliated with UB access my UB Learns course?

If you want someone who is not affiliated with UB to participate in your course, you must request an exception account.
