Import a Brightspace Package

Importing a Brightspace Package

You must first export and download a compatible Brightspace package to import to your course. Please see Exporting a Brightspace Package for more information.

If you import course components with names that already exist in the course, or you import multiple components with the same name, duplicate names appear; they are not overwritten. For example, if your course contains a discussion topic called Exam Review and you import a course package that contains a discussion topic called Exam Review, your course will contain two topics called Exam Review. When importing a grade scheme, a scheme not associated to a grade item within the course offering is only copied if the grade scheme is unique (i.e. there are no duplicates which match on name and ranges).
Note: When importing a course, if you previously had text in the quiz Introduction field, this text is automatically appended to the quiz Description field.
