Using ArcGIS Online Feature Server Offline with pitem?

A student in one of the GIS 101 courses I'm assisting with is attempting to gather data from an online feature server. Whenever he tries to download the item to use in ArcGIS Pro desktop, he's given a "pitem" file. We looked into how to retrieve the download from this pitem file but all that Esri says online that I'm finding is to open it up in Notepad and find a url that should have a direct download link. Since this is a feature server file, this simply brings us to the online metadata of the file instead. Is there a way to open these types of files in desktop? I'm unfortunately inexperienced with many of the ArcGIS Online functions but have not had these sorts of issues retrieving data in the past.
