  5. Select View or Author to view the imported module.

Exporting Modules

  1. In Author view, select Import/Export near the top of the screen.

If you unzip and open the folder, you'll see several documents plus a folder of resources. Inside that resources folder are all your module/section pages, identified and in html format. It is not recommended that you alter this package. The zip file can be imported into another site you own or you may share it with a colleague for use in their sites.
