Analytics

The Analytics tool gives you a snapshot shot of how users are engaging with the Course Gallery as well as providing some user-specific statistics.

Import

Selecting this option will bring up a window displaying all other course’s you are enrolled in that currently have videos in their Course Gallery. Select the course you wish to import videos from and select Import. Please note that this will import all videos from that course’s Course Gallery

IMPORTANT NOTE: Using the Import/Export/Copy Components tool will not copy over your videos from the Course Gallery. Any pages in your course that have embedded videos from your Course Gallery or Media Library will not work after performing a course copy. You will need to re-embed videos as needed throughout your course. If you have a lot of video content in your course, we recommend you create playlists in your Course Gallery organized by week/module/unit and point your students to via media directly through the Course Gallery. Please see the Creating Playlists section for more information.
