    2. Click on "Site Info" 

    3. Click on "Edit Tools"

    4. Look on the list, alphabetically, for "Modules," as below
      1. If "Modules" is not checked, no action is necessary for that course. 
      2. If "Modules" IS checked, please follow the instructions in part 2, below


2. 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.)

b. Find the top menu for Modules, which include View, Author, Manage, and Preferences, as below:

c. Click on "Manage"

Those instructions can be found on the wiki site, Importing Modules Data into Lessons Tool Instructions.

3. If you have "Discussion and Private Messages" data to save, there is no export tool for Discussion and Private Messages, but you can make a screenshot of the page. If you don't use Discussion and Private Messages, you don't need to do anything. 

a. On a Mac, click Command+Shift+4 to take a screenshot of your entire screen, or Command+shift+3 for a selection. The image will save on your desktop.

b. On Windows, open the "Snipping Tool" to take a selection or an image of the screen. The tool will give you the option to save the image with a name and location of your choice.
