First, head to “My Lists” when logged in to OpenSesame. You can find this by clicking your name in the upper right-hand corner of the screen and selecting “My Lists”:
From there, click the name of the List that has the courses you want to add:
Click the box to the immediate left of a course's title to select specific courses to download. If you’d like to select all courses, simply click the top box:
As soon as any course is selected, you'll see a few buttons appear:
Please note that you must add courses to your PPU library before you will be able to successfully download packages. (Packages will only be created for courses with an active license.)
To add any new courses to your PPU library, which will create licenses for them, select them and click the "Add to library" button.
Note: If you know that all of your desired courses are already in your PPU library, you can skip this step.
You'll briefly see a progress bar:
You should then be returned to your List and see a success message:
Once your courses have been added to your PPU library, select them again and click the “Deliver Courses” button:
To download course packages, choose the top option:
You will briefly see another progress bar until the file generation is complete. The resulting .zip file will include all of the course packages that were selected to download, titled by a unique identifier, a ReadMe file, and a .csv file of the metadata for each course.
Find the .zip file in your computer's downloads. It will be titled with the date of download, like this:
Note: The package type you'll receive is determined by your account settings. The default is SCORM 1.2. If you need AICC files instead, please check out this article.
Please note that you cannot upload this .zip directly to your LMS. You must first unzip it one time to access the individual .zip file for each course.
When you unzip this download you will find the individual course .zips (each titled with a unique identifier, such as 1a26c1ac-05d1-6aa4-4d3d-5e405d46222e), a metadata report, and a text file with some general instructions about uploading this content to your LMS. Do not unzip the individual course .zips, as they must remain individually zipped in order to work.
From here we recommend that you work with your LMS contacts to identify the most effective way to upload course packages to your LMS. Most LMSes typically allow the uploading of a single course or the uploading of multiple courses in bulk.
