Importing course components from a file

Printer-friendly version

You can import components created in other learning management systems, provided by content vendors, or created in a content creation program (like Respondus). To import components, you must have a file containing the components in a format supported by the Import tool.

If course components with the same name as the components you are importing already exist in the course, you will end up with duplicate course components. For example, if your course contains a discussion topic named "Exam Review" and you import a course package that also contains a discussion topic named "Exam Review," your course will contain two "Exam Review." discussion topics.

  1. Click Edit Course on your course navbar, then click Import/Export/Copy Components.
  2. On the Import/Export/Copy Components page, select Import Components.
  3. Click Start.
  4. Select the file you want to import.
  5. Choose whether to Import All Components or Select Components and then follow the prompts.
