Importing Troubleshooting

I am looking for ZIP files, but I only received IMSCC files.

Our content used to be provided in ZIP files, but the IMSCC files import to your LMS in exactly the same way. Please follow the same procedure with the IMSCC files that you did with ZIP files.

I can’t open the IMSCC file.

This file is not meant to be opened on your computer. It only contains computer-readable code, and will only work by importing it to your LMS.

When I click the file to download, my computer tries to open it.

This is due to a setting in your browser. Check your settings or preferences, or right-click the link and select “save target as” (or whatever similar phrasing your browser uses). It may also be the case that your computer did download it, and you have a setting that automatically opens the file after download. Check to see if the file is already in your downloads.

I integrated my content, and it appears to have gone correctly, but I can’t find it in my course. (or I am looking for a Root folder, but I don’t see one.)

Look for a new module named “0”. It will come after any existing modules in your course. The content will be in the form of a link that opens an embedded page in your LMS.

Not all cartridges produce a root folder. If you don’t see one, you will likely find a new content area with the name of your imported lab (if importing singly) or course (if importing a cartridge kit). Within that area, you will find a folder entitled 0. Open this folder by clicking on its name (0) and you can find the labs inside.
