Backup and restore - CRITICAL

Jump to solution

Hi,

Is there a way to backup and restore courses in canvas lms just like Moodle with student ineractions, submissions and grading included? If yes, how as I cannot see a straightforward option in the admin area to do that. There must be an out of the box way to do that. If not, what other easy and bulk way is there to do that?

What file extension is for canvas lms courses? e.g. a moodle course backed up file has .mbz as file extension. Pls advise as it is urgent. 

Thanks

 @rishi_kapoor ,

Canvas course backups are content only and do not include any user information including student interactions or grades. Restores do not import any user information either.

Canvas backups are IMSCC ZIP files. They come with an .imscc extension, but it can be renamed to .zip if it is easier to work with. The Canvas Instructor Guide has several lessons on importing and exporting course content.

If you have accidentally deleted a course, please contact Canvas Support and they may be able to restore it.
