The Export Course feature creates a package of the Course content that can later be imported and used to teach another Course with the same content. Archive Course creates a permanent record of a Course including all the content and user interactions.
The “Archive Course” option creates a permanent record of a course including all the content and user interactions. Archived courses are saved as .zip files. Archiving a course does not remove it from the system. Instructors/leaders cannot restore an archived course. To restore an archived course, please contact the system administrator.

The “Export Course” feature creates a package of the course content that can later be imported and used to teach another course with the same content. It is important to note that, unlike the Archive Course feature, Export Course does not include any user interactions within the course—it only includes the content and the tools.
Export packages are downloaded as compressed .ZIP files and are imported in the same format. Do not unzip an Export package or remove files from the package, otherwise the package will not be imported correctly. Instructors/leaders can import Exported course packages through the control panel.

Note: Please remember that, fundamentally, courses and organizations work the same. In nearly all cases, if you are trying to do something in an organization, but the help info refers to a course, you will still be able to follow the course instructions for your organization.
