How do I archive a course?

Archive Course creates a permanent record of a Course including all the content and user interactions. Archived Courses are saved as .zip files. Archiving a Course does not delete it from the system.
When archiving a course, choose to Include the Grade Center History and to Copy links to Course Files or Copy links and copies of the content.

How to Download the Course Package

  1. When the Archive Course page or the Export Course page is submitted, the system begins to create the course package. When the package is complete, the instructor who initiated the operation receives an email. After the email is received, instructors may download the course package.
  2. Click to toggle Control Panel, expand the Packages and Utilities section and select Export/Archive Course.
  3. Click the link for the package that you want to download.
  4. Save the file to the appropriate location.
