Step-by-step guide

  1. From the main course page, select Backup from the gear icon (top right).

    • If you want to select individual items to include in the backup, click Next. By default, all items are selected for inclusion in the backup. Uncheck the items you do not want to include. 
      NOTE: It is not possible for instructors to back up user data in this process.
    • Click Next for each screen until you get to the summary showing what will be included (green check) or excluded (red ×). 
    • Leave the default Filename or enter your own. The default filename includes the date and time at the end.
    • Confirm the Backup settings, then scroll to the bottom of the page, and click the Perform Backup button.

  3. Wait for the message: The backup file was successfully created. Click Continue.

After creating the backup file, the filename will appear in your User private backup area list. Click the Download link to the right of the backup file name to save the backup file to your computer.  With the local copy of your backup file (filename.mbz) you can upload and restore it any other AsULearn course.
