Make an archive copy of my Blackboard course

This method allows you to make a copy of your course on your computer or a CD-Rom. If you are developing a course or making major revisions to a course, you may wish to make a copy as a backup. You may also wish to make an archived copy midway through the term, and at the end of the term. Here is the process:

  1. Under Course Management, click on Packages & Utilities.
  2. Click Export/Archive Course.
  3. Select Archive.
  4. Decide if you wish to include the Grade Center History (not recommended).
  5. Accept the default: Copy links and copies of the content (include all Course files).
  6. Click Submit. You will receive an email when the course archive is complete.
  7. After receiving the email, go back into the Export Archive area, where you will see a .zip file of your course. Download the file to your computer or OneDrive. Then, delete the archive in the course as the next time you archive, you'll be making an archive of the course and archive(nested), which takes longer, uses more space, and is redundant.

NOTE:  The .zip file will automatically be deleted from the Blackboard course after 30 days.
