This article covers importing course components that originate from another course, another learning management system, or publisher content, such as exam cartridges.
In order to import a file into D2L, the file must be a .zip (compressed) file.
What is a course package?A course package is the file that is obtained by exporting a course. This file creates an archive (in a .zip file) that contains all the components of your course (content, quizzes, discussions, etc.). It is also often distributed by textbook publishers as a way to share their courses/resources with their customers.
For more information on exporting your course, see the Exporting Course Components article.
What files are supported?You can import course packages from the following platforms and standards:
- Brightspace by D2L
- Blackboard Learn v. 6/7/8/9
- Angel Learning v. 7/8
- Moodle v. 1.9/2
- Common Cartridge v. 1.0/1.1
- SCORM Object
Navigate to the “Course Administration” page by clicking “Course Admin” in the gray NavBar. Under the “Site Resources” heading, select “Import / Export / Copy Components.”
Once the file is loaded, choose to “Import All Components” or “Select Components.”
It is recommended that you “View Content” to make sure everything imported correctly.
