How to Export a Course
The export course feature creates a package of the course content that you can import and use to teach another course with the same content. Unlike the archive course feature, the export course feature does not include any user interactions with the course-it only includes the content and the tools.* Files within Course Files that are not used in the course or not linked in the course are not included when exporting. Export packages are downloaded as compressed ZIP files and are imported in the same format. Do not unzip an export package or delete files from the package, otherwise the package will not be imported correctly.To access the Export/Archive Course page: 1.
