How do I allow course content to be exported as an offline HTML file?
If your institution has enabled offline content, you can allow users in your course to download course content as an HTML file in the Modules page. This feature supports courses that use complex HTML or dynamic linking to downloaded files. Users can view the HTML file on a computer any time.
Exports are based on modules. To use this feature, you must allow students to view modules in the course, either by displaying the Modules link in Course Navigation or enabling modules as the Course Home Page layout.
Course content export packages include all course files, pages, and embedded files added to a module and are viewable as long as the user has permission. Content items locked by modules or by date are not included in offline content and show that the content is not available.
Exported content does not expire, so please ensure your institution has specific online user agreement guidelines as exported content files cannot be managed by the institution. When exporting content, users are notified that they may not reproduce or communicate any of the content in the course, including files exported from the course, without the prior written permission of their institution.
Note: If your course does not display the Offline Content option, your institution has not enabled this feature. However, you may be able to allow course content to be downloaded as an ePub file and manage the ePub export format.
In Course Navigation, click the Settings link.
