Learning Modules: How do I export a learning module from my course?
Learning Modules: Export
You can export learning modules and use them in other courses and installations. For example, if you create a learning module in a French 101 course, you can export it and re-use in a French 105 course.
- If the course contains content from an e-Learning Resource Pack (e-Pack), you cannot export learning modules.
- Learning modules are exported as a .zip file that can only be imported into another WebCampus section and cannot be opened on your local computer.
When you export a learning module, headings and any assessments and files linked in the table of contents or the action menu are exported. Any other items linked in the table of contents or the action menu are not exported. All learning module properties and action menu settings export except the following: Description, First page of the Learning Module should be, and Action Menu Status.
Step 2: To export:
- One learning module: .
- Multiple learning modules: Next to each module you want to export, select the check box. Then click the Export button.
When you export learning modules, they export as a content package and are saved in a zip file. The content package includes XML files, XML schema files (.xsd files), and any HTML and image files linked in the learning modules (for example, .jpg files used in the questions in an assessment).
Step 3: In the Content Browser window:
- Decide where to save the content package file.
TIP: If you are importing it into another section you have designer access to, you can choose to save the .zip file in that section. Just click on Class Files and in the middle of the window, select the other section from the list.
- Type a name in the Save as box for your content package and click OK.
The Export Progress screen appears, listing details of the export in progress. When the export is complete, the Export Log screen appears. If the export is unsuccessful, use the Export Log to trouble shoot. As long as you saved the file in My Files, the content package (the zip file) is now ready to be imported into a different course.
The zip file is saved in the location you specified. If you are going to import the learning modules to another course or system installation, you must download the zip file to your computer first. That .zip file can also be sent to another instructor as an attachment if necessary.
Step 4: On the Export Log screen, click the Return button.
