Import a Course Module

Course Module — Defined package of content and supplementary content that can be redistributed to other Möbius users.

Course Modules allow you to easily share any of your class content from your Content Repository with others.

When a Course Module is created, the selected items are packaged into a single .zip file that can be exported from your class and imported by other Möbius users and organizations.

After a Course Module is imported, it can be modified to suit the needs of the class it is being imported into.

NOTE: Importing a Course Modules is similar to sharing content with the Share function. However, after a Course Module is installed in a different class, it does not maintain any connection with the original class that was used to build the Course Module. This means that changes to the content in the original class will not affect the content within the Course Module in its new location.

IMPORTANT: If you are importing a Course Module into your class that was already previously imported, the new import of the Course Module will overwrite existing content.
