Canvas - Importing eDynamic Courses

Modified on Thu, 27 Jun at 10:01 AM

Before you Begin

You will first need to download the Canvas course package from your Client Account before following the steps below. For more details on using the Client Account, please review this guide: eDynamic Learning Client Account Quick Guide

Importing the course content

  1. In Canvas, click on Admin in the left navigation bar and choose your account.

  2. Click on +Course in the upper right

  3. Fill in the fields as needed then click Add Course
    • Course Name: Enter a title for the course
    • Reference Code: Also known as the short name or course code. This is displayed at the top of the Course Navigation Menu and as part of a student's course card in the dashboard.
    • Subaccount: If you have multiple accounts, choose which subaccount you want this course to be in. If you do not specify the subaccount, the course will be created in the main account.
    • Enrollment Term: If you are using Terms, specify which to apply this course to.

  4. Navigate into your new course

  5. Click Import Existing Content in the upper-right hand menu.

  6. Select the Content Type "Canvas Course Export Package" then click Choose File and select the eDynamic Learning course package you downloaded from your Client Account.

  7. Select All Content

  8. Click Import.

  9. You will see the import is Running. Wait for the import to show Completed.

    Please note that the import process will indicate there were a number of issues. This is to be expected as the import does not access your LTI credentials, and it is merely reporting the number of LTI links that "didn't load" yet. They will load when you go into the course if you have already set up your LTI credentials. If you haven't yet done so, see this guide for LTI setup: Canvas - LTI Configuration

  10. Click Home in the upper left-hand corner menu. You should see that the course content has now been loaded.

  11. If you have already set up your LTI credentials the course should now be working. If you haven't yet set up the credentials, see the guide below
