New Quiz QTI file exports import media embeds broken


This behavior has been resolved and deployed to the production environment as of 01/17/24.


If a New Quiz has media files in the question text for answer or description, is exported with the "Export Content" option in the quiz, and then imported to another quiz, they import blank. the "/media_objects_iframe/" in the src attribute is missing.

Expected Behavior

New Quizzes with media files should export/import to other New Quizzes without the file breaking.


No workaround exists at this time.

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a New Quiz.

  2. Create a question which has an RCE field where you create/add a video/audio file as part of an answer/description for a question.

  3. Select 3 dots at the top of the quiz > Export Content. Export quiz.

  4. Create a new New Quiz. In Build page, go to 3 dots > Import Content, and import your quiz.
