Is there a way to export a course built in Bridge as a pdf or any other kind of shareable file?
Don, Bridge admins can duplicate a course (How do I duplicate a course?), but there are restrictions on uploaded SCORM content, as the guide explains. Learners can download any file attachments associated with the course (How do I download file attachments for my course or live training?). Apart from that, courses in Bridge cannot be downloaded as a PDF or shared file. I saw a feature idea that you might find of interest: Export and Import Bridge Courses
This is a great idea. I wanted to review and provide specific feedback on course content to authors so they can make updates--but my only current option is preview the course and take screenshots of each slide. Very time intensive but would great if it could be exported into a PDF or PPT format.
Hi Amy Harrell Welcome to the Bridge Community! We have a feature idea open for voting that you can vote for and comment on at Enable courses/programs to be downloaded as PDFs and printed out. Check out these guides if you want to learn more about the feature idea process here in the Community and how it fits in to the Bridge development process:

What is the feature development process for Bridge?
Our users have asked for the ability to download the course as a PDF to be able to print them out. Please consider this feature!
Hey Linda, we are considering this and you can add your support and follow this existing idea for any updates, Enable courses/programs to be downloaded as PDFs and printed out.
Thank you, it would save us a lot of time by not having to recreate the work we have already done. I have voted this up.
You're not the first to ask about this - I'm recalling a similar thread - probably the one Adam referenced above.
I added my support for the course PDF and bumped up the vote count in support of consideration as a future enhancement.
Recently I realized that the fact that Bridge is a multi-media platform - allowing us to insert video clips, links to sites or documents with content for learners to review (YouTube), picts that may provide relevant content, as well as the usual text - would make what initially may appear to be a simple request quite challenging. Creating an external document that replicates the learner experience would require transcribing the video/YouTube content and describing any visual elements that may be key to understanding. It seems if we use all the features/functionality within Learn, it's not so simple to prepare a PDF that would include all relevant content.
I'm not a fan of PowerPoint, but some of our content creators use it. PPTs are easy to upload to Bridge. In these instances, we're able to use the PPT they provide as the course reference information (sans quiz content).
While the flexibility is nice to have, I prefer the look of a course that has been created in Bridge - although I generally start my courses in Word and copy/paste to Bridge.
Perhaps the Bridge team can find a way to PPT a text-based course - or perhaps just the text in any course. Likely still a challenge, otherwise, I expect it would have already happened.
I would like to propose the reverse of what Tereasa Corcoran mentioned. I am also not a huge fan of loading PPT files, but I do like what she suggests for using them as a way to archive course content. If we could download a course as a PPT file, it could be even more functional than a PDF. I don't do any sort of coding/software techy stuff so I'm not sure if this is even possible, but that would prevent the data loss (from video content, etc.) that was described above.
