Follow these steps to archive your courses into a zip file. Once archived, this .zip file can later be imported into a course. It’s good to have this archive in case your course data is compromised. Please note that the course archive is a snapshot of your current course. It keeps user data, grades, and attachments, but does not keep inline grading comments.
