Retrieving a learning object or asset as a new topic

If course content exists from previous offerings you can import course content from an LOR. You can import the content in several ways:

  1. On the Manage Content page, click the Add Learning Object icon from the action bar.
  2. Perform a search to find the learning object you want.
  3. Select the learning object you want.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Select whether you want to import the learning object as a dynamic link, locked link, or import (copy).
  6. Click Next.
  7. Select a parent module from the drop-down list, or select None.
  8. If you are importing the course file and the destination folder listed is not the one you want, click Choose destination to select a new folder.
