A course package is a .zip file of exported course content such as a course archive from a previous semester or the UAlbany web-enhanced course template package. Import a course package into your course to copy the content of the package into the your course. Import packages do not include student enrollments or records, such as discussion board posts and assessment attempts.
Note: Never upload an exported course package that has been edited since it was created and downloaded. Opening the .zip file and changing any of the files in the exported course package will result in unstable and unpredictable behavior when the course is imported.
