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

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.

Follow this two-step process when you have a backup file on your local computer:

  1. Upload the file to your User private backup area.
  2. Use Simple Restore to copy the activity from the backup file to your course.

Follow these steps to upload the file to your User private backup area.

1. Enter your course in TITANium.

2. Click on Restore in the Administration block.

The Administration block is, by default, the first block in the left-hand column of a new course.

Click on Restore in the Administration block.

3. 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.

4. Click on Manage backup files.
