Is it possible for a student of an educational institution that uses Blackboard Academic Suite to download all of the course data to have a personal record of it? I have an account that is going to expire and would like to download all of the data including documents, gradebooks, discussion boards, and more, but it is extremely cumbersome to do that by hand, and there is no export feature. Is it possible to get such an archive of one's user data and has anyone ever done it before?

Sorry to say so but it is not possible. They have a lot of security features which prevents users from downloading the content.
You can view the content and manually take screenshot, and save each page separately - which is not practical at all.
This kind of security is used so that their content does not gets distributed for free on internet/CDs/pendrives.
