Create a Course Module
Course Module — Defined package of content and supplementary content that can be redistributed to other Möbius users.
A Course Module compacts several pieces of content into one sharable file to ease the exchange of course material between classes and users.
A Course Module is ideal if you want to package up a large amount of content. Example — You might want to send all questions within the Questions pane of your Content Repository to another instructor who uses Möbius at a different university.
NOTE: All content and supplementary content can be added to a Course Module. However, you can't add a Course Module to another Course Module.
NOTE: Once a Course Module is exported and then imported by a recipient, its content is no longer associated with the parent content that was used to build the Course Module. This means that when a recipient imports the Course Module into their Content repository, their imported content won't automatically update to reflect changes made to the original content by the content author. This is in contrast to sharing content where a recipient of shared content will automatically receive content changes when changes are made to the original content by the content author (unless the recipient has cloned the shared content).
NOTE: Creating a Course Module and then adding content will preserve the following content components:
- Relative paths to resources (Example — images and other files that are referenced by your content).
- All question types (including those requiring outside resources).
- Activity behaviors and policies.
