To save all messages and comments at once is not possible. Copy messages or whole discussion threads manually and paste e.g. to Word document.


Open glossary -> select Export -> Export entries to file

Export entries from glossary

OU blog

To save all blog posts at once is not possible. Copy posts manually and paste e.g. to Word document. 

Adding new  OU Blog activities has been disabled because the add-on is no longer being actively developed. However, existing OU Blogs works as before. We recommend using the MM Learning Diary activity or Forum in a blog-like format instead of an OU Blog.


Open quiz -> Results tab -> select Responses from the menu -> Download table data as -> Microsoft Excel (.xlsx) -> Download


To save all wiki pages and comments at once is not possible. Copy pages or comments manually and paste e.g. to Word document. 

Importing evaluations to Sisu

Evaluations can be imported as a csv file into the implementations of the course. You can upload one csv file at a time, the maximum size of which is 2 Mb.

As a basis for the evaluation, you can take a ready-made file with the students confirmed for the implementation and the columns ready. In the course implementation in Sisu, you will find the function Download evaluation data as a csv file in the three-point menu.

In order to bring the file back to Sisu, it must be saved in csv format. The imported data must have the same credits and completion language as the evaluation object and the grade must be on the evaluation scale.

Press the Import assessment data button, select the file and send. Submitting the file takes the assessment given in the file to the students.
