Can you transfer the work created in a canvas central sandbox to the actual course on your university canvas?

Jump to solution

I created a sandbox as part of my "intro to online teaching" course on canvas central. I would like to use this a base for my online class at Santa Monica College. Can I "export" the course on canvas central to the SMC canvas?

Hi Vanessa, and Welcome to the Canvas Community!

Yes you can, quite easily actually, and here are the steps:

  • In your Canvas Central Sandbox Canvas course, go to 'Settings' at the bottom of the left hand course menu.
  • In the responding right hand menu, click on 'Export Course Content'.
  • Select 'Course' and then click 'Create Export',
  • This creates a 'New Export' link that you can click on to download the course 'imscc' file.
  • Save this file to your desktop, or other known location for future 'import'.
  • Now go to your SMC Canvas course and go to 'Settings' at the bottom of the left hand course menu.
  • In the responding right hand menu, click on 'Import Course Content'.
  • For 'Content Type', select 'Canvas Course Export Package'.
  • For 'Source' navigate to your saved 'imscc' package and select it.
  • For 'Content' select 'All content'.
  • Now click 'Import'

Voila!    ;>)
