ILT Session Bulk Import

Create up to 5,000 sessions for an ILT module to make the creation of ILT sessions faster and easier.  Information that can be imported include:

Completing an ILT Bulk Import

  1. From the Admin view, navigate an existing ILT session from within a course. 
  2. Select "Import Classroom Session in bulk" located below the "Add new session" button in the right column.
  3. Select "use this template to get started." link to download the CSV template.
  4. Fill out the CSV file. See below for more information about creating the CSV template.
  5. Click "Choose File" and select the file created in Step 4.  If Color, Time Zone, and Instructor are empty in your spreadsheet, it will use the default values set on this page.  Click "Next".

About the CSV Template

To edit your CSV file we recommend using text editor like Notepad or a spreadsheet tool like Excel or Google Sheets.  If using Excel or Google Sheets, be sure to save the file as a CSV file type. 

There are many fields that can be uploaded for each ILT session. The fields "Session Name", "Date 1", "Starting time 1", and "Ending time 1" are required.  All other columns are optional.
