Moodle: Export coursework and materials

Students are not guaranteed access to Moodle courses beyond the end of a semester. We recommend exporting copies of course syllabi, coursework (assignment submissions, forum posts, etc.) and readings you need in future classes or for applications to grad school, fellowships or jobs at the end of every semester. (Consider using bibliographic tool like Zotero or nested folders on a file storage drive (e.g., OneDrive or your H:// drive) to make it easier to find and re-use files.) 

Please note that downloading, use, and storage of Moodle content is subject to the College’s Acceptable Use, Copyright, and Data Handling policies. If you have any questions about these policies or how they apply, please contact the Help Desk.

Before you start, you may need access to the following:

  • a Registered Student or Auditor role in a Bryn Mawr Moodle course.

Download course content

If you only need a few documents, you can download and save them individually. If you need many documents or copies of course webpages, Moodle's Download Course Content option, which downloads all course webpages and documents in a zipped file for viewing without an Internet connection, may help.

Export an Assignment submission

If you no longer have a draft of a course paper you submitted through Moodle, you can download a copy.

Export your Chat, Forum, or Glossary posts

You can also save copies of posts you make in Chat, Forum or Glossary Activities within a course.

Tip: Click the Activities drop-down tab, and then an Activity type, such as Assignments or Forum to list all activities of that type on a single page.


If you have any additional questions or problems, don't hesitate to reach out to the Help Desk!
