Exporting Canvas Content

When providing content online to your students, it’s a good idea to export that content every once in a while… just in case.
And you know, if you export it often, you  never need it, right?
If you choose to not export… just remember Murphy’s Law: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.”

Here are the steps to export course content from Canvas:

  1. Enter your course
  2. Settings (lower left)
  3. Export Course Content (right)
  4. Export type: Course
  5. Click Create Export
  6. Wait (or leave the course and come back to the Export Course Content button later)
    You’ll receive an email when the export process is complete with a link to return to the page you need
  7. Click on link labeled “Click here to download”
  8. Save the file you download
