Directions for Backing Up a Blackboard Course Shell

You have two options:
(1) EXPORT. This backs up course the course structure. Use this if you want to save a course to teach from in the future.
(2) ARCHIVE. This creates a copy of all the posts, gradebook, etc. (i.e. it preserves a course with all the student/faculty interactions). Do this at the end of the semester.
