Exported a lecture or question as Text (with Tex), HTML, or PDF.
If I have used this site as an authoring tool, and wish to use the same question in other environments/publications, it would be very nice to not have to retype everything...
Great idea — I’ve added this to our list of ideas to look at for our development roadmap.
Hey Anne - yes, you can export questions to a PDF. Select the gear icon next to the module you'd like to export questions from and select Create PDF.
These comments are from 5-6 years ago. Has that issue been resolved? Is there an option to export questions? My only solution over the years has been to create copies of copies of courses...not ideal...
I also think that a markup for import/export is critical. I am not willing to spend many hours developing materials if I might lose all of this material in the event that LC goes down etc.
It is important for me to have an archive that I control of my material for future use. Melissa argued this point.
The web interface is fine for entering one or two questions, but tedious for entering or editing a large number of questions. It is much more efficient to edit all ones questions in a text file where one can use all the functionality of a proper editor (spell-check, completion, ordering, search and replace, etc).

I second Linda's comment. Instructors need a way to archive all of the questions they use for a course in an archival format (pdf or even HTML) at the end of the semester. Software changes so rapidly as do curricula. Even if I am still using LC 10 years from now, I will not be teaching the same version of the course.

In a similar way, I'd like to be able to download and save my questions for the next time I teach, in the event that I'm not using LC.
