How do I export Lessons content?

Updated on

The Lessons tool allows instructors to export course content in IMS Common Cartridge format. If your Lessons contain links to site activities (e.g., assignments, forum topic, or quizzes) or resources (e.g., files, url links) those items will also be exported in the content package.

Note: Pages added by students via the Student Pages tool are not included in the export file. 

Go to Lessons.

Lessons button

Click on the Lessons tool in the Tool Menu to display the page.

Note: You must be on a top-level page to export Lessons content.

Click More Tools, then Export CC.

More tools menu

From the More Tools drop-down menu, select Export CC to display the Export IMS Common Cartridge dialog.

Choose the desired options and select Download.
