IMS content package


Add an IMS content package to our course



Whatever you type here will form the link learners click on to view the IMS content package, so it is helpful to give it a name that suggests its purpose.


Add a description of your package here. (This may or may not be required according to admin settings.) Click "Show editing tools" to display the rich text editor, and drag the bottom right of the text box out to expand it.

Display description on the course page

If this box is ticked, the description will appear on the course page just below the name of the package.


In the Content section, drag and drop your IMS Content package into the box with the arrow (1 below) or else click the button "Choose a file" to locate and add your IMS Content package via the File picker (2 below)

'Archive packages' refers to the number of previous versions of this package that you wish to keep.
