Importing Content: Dreamweaver Web Sites and Pages
Importing Dreamweaver Web Sites and Pages
There are two ways that you can import web sites or pages that were created by using Macromedia Dreamweaver® software:
You can import the web sites or pages as a zip file or single HTML files.
- You can import the web sites or pages as learning modules. Each HTML page becomes an HTML file in the learning module's table of contents. The instructions for importing Dreamweaver web sites or pages as learning modules are described below.
To import Dreamweaver web sites or pages as learning modules, they must have been created using Dreamweaver MX 2004 software and the Content Packager for IMS extension. For more information, see Macromedia Dreamweaver Content Packager for IMS.
After the web sites or pages are imported, you can create links to them on content folders in the Course Content tool.
Step 1: Ensure the Dreamweaver web site or pages are saved as a content package in zip file format on your local computer, on an accessible network drive, or in the course system.
Step 2: Do one of the following:
If you are on the Manage Course screen, go to step 3.
- To navigate to the Manage Course screen, under Designer Tools, click Manage Course. The Manage Course screen appears.
Step 3: Click Import. The Content Browser pop-up window appears.
Step 4: Do one of the following:
If the zip file you want to import is on your local computer or on an accessible network drive:
- Click the My Computer icon. Your computer's file browser or the Upload Files from Your Computer screen appears.
Locate and select the zip file.
- If the zip file you want to import is in the course system File Manager, locate and select the zip file.
The Content Import in Progress screen appears, listing details of the import in progress.
Step 5: After the content package finishes importing, if you want to view a log that contains details about the import process:
Click View Import Log. The Import Log pop-up window appears.
- When you are finished viewing the import log, click Close. The Import Log pop-up window closes.
Step 6: Click Return.
The Course Content Home screen appears and the web site or pages are added as a learning module to the Learning Module tool. Note: All imported files are stored in the File Manager in a folder called Imported_Resources. You can view the contents of this folder in File Manager. A file called Content Import Log was created when the Dreamweaver content was imported. This file describes what happened to the content after it was imported. For more information, see Viewing the Content Import Log.
Step 7: To go to the learning module:
Under Course Tools, click Learning Modules. The Learning Modules screen appears, displaying a list of learning modules in the tool.
- Locate the imported learning module and click its title.
Note: You can create links to learning modules on folders in the Course Content tool. For more information, see Linking Learning Modules to Content Folders.
