Find LARC Flat Files


Learning Analytics Data Architecture (LARC), U-M Google


LARC flat files have moved from U-M Box to U-M Google Platform


As part of the Box Retirement Project, ITS has copied the Learning Analytics Data Architecture (LARC) flat files and the LARC resource folder to the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). You will log in with your UMICH (Level-1) credentials, as you did before in U-M Box. ITS will continue transitioning LARC Box folder content to GCP over summer and in late-September 2021, you will no longer be able to access LARC content in Box.

The LARC flat files will be located in both the U-M Box and GCP LARC Student Folder until September 21, 2021. You will be able to download and extract the zipped LARC flat files from GCP the same way you would have from Box. You will continue to have edit access to the new LARC Resources Folder to share information, sample code, etc.
