How do I create a backup of my course? (Academic Year 2019-2020)

Follow these steps in TITANium 3.6 for the 2019-2020 academic year.

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.

1. Enter your course from 2019-2020 academic year.

Since the individual instructor sandbox course is not backed up automatically for instructors, this guide will use a Sandbox-type course as a sample, but this process can be used for any course.

2. Click on the Gear icon.

Gear icon is selected.

3. Select the Backup link.

Backup link selected.
Alert: Do you have any H5P activities in your course?

If you do have any H5P activities in your course, you will need to download them individually.

Follow this guide on downloading H5P activities.

If you have any H5P interactions in your course, you will need to NOT include them in this backup file; otherwise, you will not be able to restore this backup file to your new course in a new academic year. Read this guide to learn how to only include desired content within your backup.

4. Click on Jump to final step.

The Include enrolled users checkbox should be deselected by default.

If you do not want to include blocks, filters, calendar events, or the question bank, you can deselect them as desired.

If you want to only backup individual items (files, activities, resources, etc.), you can click on Next instead of Jump to final step.

Jump to final step is selected.

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.

Continue button is selected.

6. Scroll down to the User private backup area.

The most recently backed up course file will be at the top of the list.

User private backup area is selected.

7. Click on Download

The file will be downloaded to your computer. This file can then be used to upload to a 2020-2021 academic year instance of TITANium.

Download link is selected.
