Exporting to another Canvas user

So, what if a teacher is leaving a job. Could that teacher export her Canvas modules/courses to an individual Canvas account? I know anyone can open and have an individual Canvas account. I love Canvas so much and don't want to ever lose the great content I have created here. Can I move to my own personal Canvas?

If so, how?

Thanks, Kate

Instructors can export their course content using this Guide:

Then, an instructor could create a Free For Teacher (FFT) account and upload the course export file to a course in his/her FFT account.

How do I import a Canvas course export package?

However, as you may know, the FFT account would have some limitations compared to a paid Canvas account that is at your school or business.  (By the way, I don't believe there is any way for an individual to purchase a Canvas environment for himself/herself.)  You'll want to review the comparison PDF document that is linked in this Guide:

Canvas Free-for-Teacher FAQ (canvaslms.com)

I hope this will be of some help to you.  Sing out if you have any questions...thanks!
