After our upgrade to Sakai 12.1, on June 25th, 2018, the "Modules" tool will no longer be available and we won't have access to that data. if you've been using the Modules tool you'll need to export and import that data into the Lessons tool.

If you don't know if you've been using the Modules tool, or need more information about the upgrade, please go to the wiki page "Sakai 12.1 Upgrade Instructions" for more instructions.


1. How to save Modules data 

a. Go to "Modules" in your course. (NOTE - In rare cases, the name for Modules may have been changed at some point in the Page Order tool, in Site Info.)

c. Click on "Manage"

d.  Click on the bottom menu item in "Managing options," which is "Import/Export."

e. Under "Export Modules" leave the default "IMS Content Package format"

f. Choose What to Export - Either "All modules" or select the ones you want.
