Cobra Learning - Importing Course Components from a File

CobraBanner

Importing course components from a file

You can import components created in other learning managements 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.

For assistance creating an export file from another software package, see the user documentation provided with that software, or contact your site administration if you need further assistance.

Import course components

Import course components

To import course components:
  1. In the course offering containing the components you want to copy, on the navbar, click Course Admin, 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.
  6. To review and manage course dates, click Review and Manage Dates.

If you import course components with names that already exist in the course, or you import multiple components with the same name, duplicate names appear; they are not overwritten. For example, if your course contains a discussion topic called Exam Review and you import a course package that contains a discussion topic called Exam Review, your course will contain two topics called Exam Review.

Converting Moodle Lessons

Using the Import/Export/Copy Course Components tool in Brightspace Learning Environment, you can edit an existing course and upload an unconverted Moodle Lessons course package.

During the course conversion process, entries from the IMSManifest.xml file are converted and imported into the Content tool as topics and files, placed into a content module named Imported Lessons. Each topic displays a Lesson: prefix to indicate that the topic is a converted Moodle Lesson.
