If you would only like to export certain course components from D2L, instead of checking Select all components, check the boxes individually. Then click Select individual items to export under each component category you’d like to export. When you click Continue, the following screens will allow you to select individual grade items/categories, news items, course content items, and dropboxes. In the example below, only Content items will be exported, not dropbox folders, grade items/categories, or news items.
On the Import Content page, select D2L export .zip format from the Content Type drop-down menu. Then, next to Source, click Choose File and select the .zip file you downloaded from D2L in Step 8. Leave the Default Question bank box set to Select question bank. If you will be importing all of the course material from your D2L course, click All content. Finally, click Import.
If you would like to adjust the due dates for the items you are importing from D2L, check the box Adjust events and due dates. This will make the Date adjustment options visible. Select Shift dates. In the date boxes below, put the begin/end dates of the previous semester in the left column, and the begin/end dates for the new semester in the right. Finally, click Import.
