Archiving a Class/Group is the best practice because it freezes the Class/Group while preserving all of the data and activity. Once a Class/Group is archived, it becomes inactive. Students will still be able to view the Posts and Direct Messages from the Teacher Owner and Co-Teachers, but they will not be able to Post in the Class/Group, access Shared Folders, Assignments, or Quiz submissions. What's more, Teacher Owners can restore archived Class/Group for later use. Learn more about how to restore an archived Class/Group.
To archive a Class/Group, simply do the following:
- Navigate to the Class/Group from the left side panel
- Click More on the right side of the central information panel
- Select Advanced Settings
- Click Archive > Yes
Note: If you want to reuse the Class/Group name, you will need to change the name before archiving as you will not be able to create a new Class/Group with the same name.
If you are sure you want to permanently delete a Class/Group and no longer wish to save any of the activities, assignments, or quizzes.
To delete a Class/Group, simply:
- Navigate to the Class/Group
- Click on More in the central information panel
- Select to Advanced Settings
- Click Delete > Yes
