Create backups of course content and student information.
Archiving a course creates a permanent record of a course
including all the content and user interactions available at the
time the archive is created.
Exporting a course creates a package of course content that can
later be imported into the same course or a different course.
Unlike Archive Course, Export Course does not include any user
interactions. It only includes Content, Settings, and Tools. You
must have Manage Permissions on these files in order to make copies
of them or to re-link them when copied.
After the selections for Export or Archive are submitted, the
system creates the Export or Archive package. When the package is
complete, an email alert is sent to the instructor.
After the email is received,
- Go to Control Panel > Packages and Utilities
> Export/Archive Course.
- Click on the export or archive package.
- Save the file to the local computer.
