To take something offline means to move a conversation outside of the current venue, usually to adhere to an agenda.  For example, if you are in a study group meeting for your core classes, and two people start discussing which electives to take next semester, one might say, “We need to get back to the topic of the study group meeting. We can take this offline and talk about it later.”
