Back up your module

Please be sure to back up your module at the end of each semester!

It is good practice to save a copy of your webcourses module to your own PC/laptop at the end of each semester. It is advisable to 'Include Grade Centre History' as this will save any assignments, surveys etc completed by students. The backup can be restored to webcourses at a later date if needed.

  1. Log into the appropriate webcourses module
  2. From the control panel, click ‘packages and utilties’
  3. Click 'Export/Archive Module'
  4. Select 'Archive'
  5. Check the tick box to 'Include Grade Centre History'
  6. Click Submit
  7. Wait a few moments and click the 'Refresh' button. You may need to do this a few times.
  8. When the archive has saved the file name will appear on your screen:

 

9.   Hover mouse over file name and click on the dropdown arrow which will appear to the right of the file name

10. Click 'Open' and then select 'Save File'

11. Click 'Ok' and save the file to an appropriate location on your computer.
