How do I export a Canvas course?
You can export a Canvas course to give to someone in another Canvas account, to upload to another institution's account at a later date, or to create a copy as a backup on your local computer.
Exports are packaged as IMSCC zip files, which can only be opened by programs that support Common Cartridge files.
Note: Canvas exports do not include backups of student interactions and grades. Grades can be exported separately as a .csv file.
Select Export Type
View the progress bar. Exporting a course in Canvas may take a few minutes, depending on its size. You will receive an email when the export is complete.
