Import Package

Summary


This pages describes how to use the import package function in your Blackboard course.

Overview

Instructors may use the Import Package page to upload Course materials from another Course. For example, if they have exported a Course they may import the whole Course package, or selected parts of the Course through Import Package. Never upload an Exported Course package that has been edited since it was created and downloaded. Opening the .ZIP file and changing any of the files in the Exported Course package will result in unstable and unpredictable behavior when the Course is imported.

  • Check the appropriate boxes for the Course Materials you want to import

  • When Import process is complete you will see the created log file(s) after selecting Import Package/View logs in your control panel packages and utilities sub-menu again
    • You can click on the log file to view any errors that may have occurred during the import process
