Exporting your questions from Brightspace

First, head over to your Brightspace account and click on “View All Courses”.

From there, select a course, go into its settings by clicking on the cog symbol on the right and choose “Import/Export/Copy Components”.

About this feature

Please note that only Brightspace quizzes can be exported to Wooclap for now. There are a few limitations to take into account as well when it comes to question types in Brightspace and in Wooclap:

  • The Multiple Choice question type becomes a MCQ question type in Wooclap with only one correct answer.

  • The Multi-Select question type becomes a MCQ question type in Wooclap with various possible answers.

  • The Short Answer question type becomes an Open Question in Wooclap.

  • The Multi-Short Answer question type becomes an Open Question in Wooclap where all the answers are listed once imported into Wooclap.

  • Matching in Brightspace differs slightly from Wooclap. Indeed, in Wooclap there is always a matching element per destination. Please note that Arithmetic and Significant figures aren’t supported.

  • The Long Answer question type becomes an Open Question in Wooclap.
