The Export option lets you create a folder of the module content - known as a “Package”. You can then import this package back into Blackboard to create a new course with the same content.


Please note - this will only save the course content. It doesn’t save the student interactions or grades.


1. Go to the lower-left section of the screen, to the Course Management menu, and click on the “Packages and Utility” section, then click on “Export/Archive Course”.


2. To export your module, select "Export Package" from the Blue menu at the top of the content area.


3. If you want to include all of the files in the module in your export, make sure that “Copy links and include copies of the files in the course default directory” is ticked. This results in a larger file size, but it makes sure that you have copies of everything.


4. Next, you need to select what module content you want to move - what Content Areas, what Discussion boards, and so on.


5. Then click Submit


After this, you will receive an email to your CIT email informing you if the export was successful. And the package content file will show up on your Export/Archive Course screen (step 1 above). This zip file is now available for download.

 


NOTE: If you want to import this content into another module, go to the Course Management menu, and click on the “Packages and Utility” section, then click on “Import Package / View Logs”. Then, in the next screen choose "Import Package", choose the file that you downloaded from your computer and click "Submit".
