Note on Importing

  • It may take several minutes to several hours following the receipt of the confirmation message for imported course package materials to appear in the new shell.
  • Never upload a course package that has been edited since it was created and downloaded. Opening the exported zip file and changing any of the items it contains will result in unstable and unpredictable behaviour when the course is imported into a new shell.
