D2L - Archive an Entire Course (UW-Madison)
UW-Madison is adopting Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system, and discontinuing support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and Moodle. Access to D2L and Moodle will permanently end June 1, 2018. For information about retaining materials from D2L or Moodle, please refer to this document.
Course components such as News, Quizzes, and Grades can be exported from your course as a .zip file. This will allow you to reuse D2L components by importing them into another course offering or template at a later date.
Step-by-step Instructions1. In your course, click on Course Admin in the navigation bar, and then select Edit Course from the drop-down menu.
2. Under Site Resources, click on .
*NOTE: If your course files are too large, you may receive the following error message when trying to export your course. If this occurs, you will need to export your course in pieces (e.g. Content and Dropbox Forms in one export, and Quizzes and Question Libraries in another export).
