How do I import content from an archive file?
Note: Import from Archive should not be used to copy course materials from one Loyola Sakai course or project site to another. Rather instructors and project owners should use the Import from Site option or the Import/Export CC option in the Lessons Tool.
Go to Site Info.
Select the Site Info tool from the Tool Menu of your site.
Select Import from Archive File.
Choose a file to import.
Select the Choose File button to browse for and select your import file. Once you have located your file, the filename will display on this screen.
Note: Sakai supports several import file types (e.g. IMS Common Cartridge Archives, Blackboard Archive files, etc.). If you wish to import a course from another course management system, e.g., Blackboard, Canvas, Moodle, check with the LUC system administrator (email@example.com) to determine the file import options currently enabled and the best file format for you to use.
Select the Import button and wait for the file to be uploaded and processed. Depending on the size of the file, this may take some time.
Select the content to be imported.
You will see a list of content types from your import file on the left.
- Select the item you want to import to select it. (You may select multiple items using CTRL + Click for PC or Command + Click for Mac).
- Use the right pointing arrow button under Move to move the item(s) over to the list of material to be imported.
- Select Copy Materials to import the selected content.
