Course Files in Course Packages

To include course files in a course package when exporting or archiving a course, a user creating the package must have manage permission on the course folder.

To add course files from a course package to a destination folder when importing or restoring a course, a user performing the operation must also have manage permission on the course folder.

If your institution has access to the content management features, users with read permission can include links to course files during an import/export or archive/restore operation. Users with manage permission can include links to course files and copies of the course files themselves.

If a user importing or restoring a course does not have manage permission, some of the package contents might not upload successfully.

Links to files that are not included when the package is created will not work when the package is imported or restored. For example, if a course area links to a test but the package does not include tests, surveys, and pools, the link to the test will not work in the new course.

All course users have read permission on the course files included in the package. Users with the following roles have manage permission:

  • Instructors
  • Course builders
  • Teaching assistants
