How do I use Simple Restore to import a backup of an Activity into my course?

Alert: The Simple Restore block is not available for TITANium 2019-2020. Instead use the Restore tool.

After creating a backup file of a single Activity from one of your courses (or from another instructor), you may use the Simple Restore tool to bring that one Activity into a different course. As an alternative, the Restore tool may be used.

1. Upload the file to your User private backup area.

1.1. Enter your course in TITANium.

1.2. Click on the Gear icon.

Gear icon is selected.

1.3. Select Restore.

Restore is selected.

1.4. Scroll down the page to the User private backup area.

If you were the user who created the backup file and it was done for the same academic year of TITANium, then it should be listed within the User private backup area.

User private backup area is selected.

1.5. Click on Manage backup files.

However, if you received the backup file from a colleague or you created it and downloaded it from a previous academic year of TITANium, or you received it from a publisher, then you will need to upload the file by clicking on Manage backup files.

Manage backup files button is selected.

1.6. Drag the backup file to the User private backup area upload box.

The file upload limit is 100 MB.

If your file is larger than 100 MB, you need to send an email to lmsadmin@fullerton.edu, giving them the name of the original course and the name of the new course. You will be notified when a backup file of your original course has been uploaded. Then, you can use Simple Restore to copy the content into the new course.
