Exporting Material from an Old Course
The Export Course feature creates a package of selected course materials in a compressed .zip file.
This .zip file can later be imported into another course.
To export a course:
Step 1: In the Control Panel, select Packages and Utilities, then select Export/Archive Course.
Step 2: Click the Export button.
Step 3: Select the check boxes for each course area and tool in the course that should be exported.
Step 4: Click Submit.
Be patient as the process completes. A large course may take a long time to export.
A confirmation saying this action has been queued appears. The export will be processed in order.
Once the export is complete, a file appears on the Export/Archive Course page for downloading.
Step 5: Right click on the file name to save the file to your local computer.
A large file may take a long time to download.
Once you save the Export .zip file to your computer, do not extract or unzip the files from it.
Also, do not remove files from the .zip package. The .zip file must stay exactly as it was when
downloaded so that it can be imported without any issues.
