How Do I Export a Course?

Use "Export Course" to save all or parts of the course structure. Exporting does not include student activities or student roster. This feature only exports the information created in the course and gives the option to select individual content areas to be exported into an existing course. The exported course will be saved as a .zip file and may be imported into a different course.

To Export an entire Course or a specific individual area:

1. Log into Blackboard and go into your course. Under the Control Panel and Packages and Utilities, click Export/Archive Course.
