You can export modules you have created in either IMS content packaging format or SCORM 2004 format. You can import modules in IMS content packaging format. Many textbook and e-learning publishers produce content in one of these two formats.

If you need to import modules from another site that you own, you can use the Site Setup tool; see ARCHIVED: Importing material or participants from another site you own.

Importing an IMS content package into Modules

  1. In the Modules tool, click Author at the top of the page.
  2. Click Import/Export.
  3. Click Browse to find the appropriate file on your computer or network, and then click Open. The file you import should be a .zip file, as described below in Exporting modules.
  4. Click Import to import the content package or Cancel to cancel the action.
  5. The import process adds all of the modules in the content package to the end of the module list. To delete modules you don't need, see ARCHIVED: Adding, editing, or deleting a module using the Modules tool. To sort them, see ARCHIVED: Sorting and nesting modules and content sections in the Modules tool.

Exporting modules

You can choose to export modules in either IMS content package format or SCORM 2004 format.

  1. In the Modules tool, click Author at the top of the page.
  2. Click Import/Export.
  3. Select IMS Content Package format or SCORM 2004 format.
  4. Select the modules you wish to export from the "What to export" box.

    Note: Hold down the Ctrl key (or Command key on the Mac) to select more than one module.

  5. Click Export to produce a .zip file containing the content in the form you have chosen. An IMS file can be imported into the Modules tool of another course site or into any IMS-compliant site. A SCORM 2004 file can be imported into any SCORM 2004-compliant site.

    Note: Oncourse does not support the SCORM 2004 format, so you cannot import modules exported using this format.
