Is there a way to batch export layers to KML from ArcMap (ArcGIS Desktop) by altering the layer to KML tool to have more than one layer input?

If you right click the Layer To KML tool in the ArcToolbox, there is a batch option. This is common for most of the geoprocessing tools for ArcGIS 10. You could also use the Map To KML tool, which creates a kmz of all the layers loaded within a saved mxd.
