How do I export a course from Canvas?

You might want to export a Canvas course for many reasons. For example, you can export your Canvas course to create a course backup on your local computer, give to someone in another Canvas account, import to another institution’s Canvas account at a later date, or import into a different Learning Management System altogether.

Canvas course exports are packaged as IMSCC ZIP files, which can only be opened by programs that support Common Cartridge files. Once downloaded, you can also change the extension from .imscc to .zip and treat it as any other ZIP file.
