How do I import lesson content?

The Lessons tool allows instructors to import course content saved in the IMS Common Cartridge format (.imscc) into course sites. Using this capability, instructors may import content from other UVaCollab sites, or other learning management systems such as Moodle and Blackboard.

Following the completion of the import process, the course content is available in the Lessons tool of the site. Some of the properties of the imported content may have been changed by the import process:

  • Properties requiring items to be completed, or preventing their release until all prerequisites have been completed, are removed. To restore these properties, instructors can edit these items.
  • Inline questions are not included in the imported content.
  • Student comments and student pages are not included in the imported content.
