How do I change the format of a course ePub export file?

As an instructor, you can allow students to download your course as an ePub file. Students can view ePub content offline using an ePub reader. Learn more about how to generate an ePub file.

The default ePub organization is by module, meaning only items that students have access to view in each module will be included in the ePub file. Locked modules list either their pre-requisites or the unlock date, as well as the items that are contained within that module (though not the actual content of those items themselves). However, you can choose to set your course organization by content type (e.g. assignments, quizzes, etc.).

Note: ePub Exporting is currently a course opt-in feature. To enable this feature, learn how to manage feature options in the course features lesson.
