Closing an Existing Course and Downloading a Copy
After performing the following steps no Moodle users will have access to your course. However, a backup will be stored on a local drive that you select and your original course will be ready for new enrollments. This backup could later be restored if required (i.e., student grade appeals, course development, etc.).
Remove student access to the course
In your course page go to Settings > Edit settings > Availability and select This course is not available to students. Scroll to the bottom of the page and select Save changes.
Backup your course
Download a copy of the backup
