How do I import courses and tests from another system?


Import a Course

Schoology supports the following course exports from external systems:

Important Notes:
  • As of April 30, 2020, any test/quiz content from a Blackboard, Common Cartridge, and QTI file imports into Resources as Assessments, instead of Test/Quiz for new Schoology Enterprise organizations and instructors using Schoology Basic. Enterprise instructors that previously imported content (QTI v1.2 import tool) as tests/quizzes are not affected by this change. If you’re a system administrator and you wish to import third party content as tests/quizzes instead of assessments, contact your Schoology representative.
  • Content uploaded via the QTI v2.1 and 2.2 tool imports to Resources as assessments only.

To import a Moodle, Blackboard, Brainhoney or Angel course export file, or to import Common Cartridge or QTI content:

  1. Click Resources in the header.
  2. Click the down-facing arrow next to My Resources and select Import.
  3. Select the correct export platform:
    Uploader Tool
  4. Select whether to import to a New collection or an Existing collection.
  5. Name the Collection title if you're creating a new one.
  6. Click Next, and upload the file to Schoology.
  7. Click Import to complete.
