How do I upload content in a zip file on a Lessons page?

Instructors can content packaged in a zip file to a Lessons page. This is useful if you have content that is pre-packaged as a self-contained archive, such as content objects created using Camtasia, Wimba Create, Articulate, or other content authoring tools.  

Go to Lessons.

Select the Lessons page title in the Tool Menu to display the page.

Note: The default or blank Lessons page contains text and images that explain the basic functionality of the Lessons tool.

Select Add Content, then Upload content in ZIP file.

From the Add Content drop-down menu, select Upload content in ZIP file.  

Enter an item name and select the file.

  1. Enter an Item Name. The item name is the text that will appear on the Lessons page as a link to the zipped content.
  2. Select Choose Files to browse for the item on your computer and upload it.
  3. Alternately, you may select the Or select existing files from Resources to select a file that has already been uploaded to your site.

Verify that the selected file is correct, and select Save.

The filename of the selected zip file will display. If this is correct, select Save to add the item to Lessons.  

The zip content will display.

Selecting the item link from the Lessons page should launch the index page from your zip file package.
