How do I create a backup of my course?
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.
This guide has been updated for TITANium 2019-2020.
Read this guide to learn how to backup a course from an earlier year.
1. Enter your course in TITANium.
2. Click on the Gear icon.
3. Select Backup.
4. The Backup settings page will display.
Decide which settings you want to include. Generally speaking, the defaults are sufficient for most teacher-created backups.
5. Decide whether to Include enrolled users and user data.
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.
6. Click on Jump to final step.
Once you un-check Include enrolled users, several fields will be automatically deselected and will be grayed out.
If you want to keep all of the other elements, scroll down and click on Jump to final step. If you choose Next, then you can pick and choose individual resources and activities to backup or not.
7. Wait for the backup to complete.
Depending on the amount of content included in the backup, it may take several seconds or a minute or two.
8. Click on Continue.
When the backup file has been created, click on the Continue button.
9. Your backup file is now in the User private backup area.
Scroll down to the User private backup area to see your backup file listed. You can leave the file on the TITANium server or click on Download to download the file to your local computer. You can always return to this page by clicking on the Restore link in the Gear icon menu on the course main page.
You have now learned how to use the Backup tool to create a backup file of your course in TITANium.
