Archive or save lessons/activities

Jump to solution

As the year comes to an end, I want to know if there is a way to save or archive activities and lessons.  I expect my district to delete coursework as the close of the year.

Hi @JohnMemoli,

Due to the cloud hosted nature of Canvas it is actually much more common for institutions to close rather than dele previous courses so you may still have access to old courses (check with your local admin on that policy).  That being said, you have a number of options for preserving course content.  Probably the most commonly employed is to go to your course Settings to "Export Course Content" - either that or copy your content into a sandbox, or other course you will still have access.  Note that creating and downloading an export file of your course will preserve the content and structure but will not contain any student work or information.
