"would it also be possible to simply backup all the Journal to USB drives or a network share and then give each pupil a copy of their backup? Would they be able to extract files into standard formats?"
This activity: http://activities.sugarlabs.org/en-US/sugar/addon/4326
Make a backup of the Journal entries...
The process is make an .tar.gz of all entries and save in a folder into an usb: /backup/SN###### (SN#... is the serial of the XO)
With this, you can make some backups in the same pendrive...
The twin activity: Restore: http://activities.sugarlabs.org/en-US/sugar/addon/4327
Decompress the .tar.gz into the journal again...
If you decompress the .tar.gz the files are in the format of the journal.. With luck, you find the filethat you search and change the extension and you get the file..
PD: in ourt Uruguayan image.. Dextrosa.. The backup/restore are functions that appears in the Journal.. I think that is the same script that this activities had..
