How do I create a backup of my course? (Academic Year 2016-2017)
You will learn how to use the Backup tool to make a backup file of your course in TITANium. This file can later be used to make a duplicate of your course (or portions of it), or to restore this course in case you later accidentally delete some resource or activity.
Follow these steps in TITANium for the 2016-2017 academic year.
1. Enter your course from 2016-2017 academic year
Since the individual instructor sandbox course is not backed up automatically for instructors, this guide will use a Sandbox course as a sample.
2. Click on Backup
The Backup link is in the Admination block which is usually the first block on the left-hand side of your course.
3. Deselect 'include enrolled users'
If you want to include current enrolled user data in the backup file, such as their forum, assignment, and gradebook data, then leave Include enrolled users checked.
If you do not need to keep user data, then un-check Include enrolled users. If your intention is to use the course backup file to make a duplicate of your course (e.g., in another section of the same course or in another term), then it is not necessary to include the user data.
Keep in mind that instructors cannot restore student data; they can only back it up.
4. Click on Jump to final step
Once you un-check Include enrolled users, several fields will be automatically deselected and will be grayed out. Scroll down and click on Jump to final step.
5. Click on Continue
Wait for the backup process to complete. Depending on the amount of content included in the backup, it may take several seconds.
6. Scroll down to the User private backup area
The most recently backed up course file will be at the top of the list.
7. Click on Download
To save this file to your local computer, click on Download. The file will be downloaded to your computer. This file can then be used to upload to a 2017-2018 academic year instance of TITANium.
You have learned how to create and download a backup file for your course in the 2016-2017 academic year.
