Download Content

Course content in VIULearn is usually only available for a short time after the course completes. If there is content in your courses that you want to keep for future reference (such as a syllabus with a record of the course content, or a great study guide or article you think you will want to look at later) or if you would prefer to download and read these materials offline, you can download these items from your course with the steps below.

Please Note: the ability to download content from a course does not give you the right to distribute or use this material without permission. If you have questions about content ownership, please see the VIU Library Copyright and Licenses
