Moodle Imports into Learning

Hi all - I am trying to import Moodle MBZ/IMSCC Files into Learning and while sometimes the content came in OK, other times there is an error that asks me to check for file size (my file size was 200MB so I was well under the limit). 

 

My question is: Is there a good fairly clean and consistent way to import content from Moodle courses into Learning? Any 3rd party apps/extensions that can help?

 

I am using Moodle 2.9 so the version is compatible.

 

Thanks.

Re: Moodle Imports into Learning

Hello @skrishna

 

Thank you for reaching out about importing content from Moodle courses into Learning. We checked with our Learning team for any suggestions and tips to help with what you are seeing. It looks like the issue may be stemming from a file format on the export that is not being recognized and is causing some errors.

 

What seems to work in most cases is to rename the file to .zip, unzip and rezip the file before importing the content. If your default zip program does not help with this, please let us know and we’d be happy to suggest some online programs. We would also be happy to take a look at the file for you. You can feel free to reach out directly to Support to test out the file.  

 

We hope this information is helpful; please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

Thank you Michelle. I tried renaming a MBZ file to ZIP and tried to unzip it but it wouldn't work. Let me try on another sample MBZ file and if that doesn;t work either I shall reach out to support. Is there a specific email address for that support? Or a link to a page where I can attach the MBZ file for them to see?

 

Please let me know.
