How do I import a Canvas course export package?

In this lesson, you will learn how to import a Canvas course export package.

Notes:

  • Draft State settings are retained in course imports. If an assignment is unpublished as part of a course export, the assignment will also be unpublished in the course import.
  • When importing a Canvas course export package, the package will overwrite some of the existing course settings. For example, if your destination course is set up with a private copyright, and you import a package that has a creative commons (CC) copyright, the copyright license in the destination course will change from Private to CC. We suggest you revisit the course settings after any course import to make sure important settings are still in place.
  • Importing a course more than once may have unintended consequences. If you import content into a new course, edit the content in the new course, and later import the same content again, your new course will include both the edited and original content.
  • Courses are allotted 500MB quota for file storage. Administrators at your institution set the file storage quota for each course.
