Export Course


This document shows you how to export a course.


The Export Course feature creates a package of the Course content that can be imported and used to teach another Course with the same content or shared with another instructor. It is important to note that, unlike the Archive Course feature, Export Course does not include any user interactions with the Course—it only includes the content and the tools. Export packages are downloaded as compressed .ZIP files and are imported in the same format. Do not unzip an Export/Archive package or remove files from the package, otherwise the package will not be imported correctly.
Note: Export saves course content only.
