I'm trying to import a canvas course export package (selected parts) into my course. It consistently times out and I haven't been able to upload it. Ideas?
Hello MARTHA HOUSE...
Out of curiosity, where is the export file coming from? Did you export content from another Canvas course? Was the export from a different LMS or other third-party software that you are now trying to import into your course? I ask because maybe an easier way, if you are just importing (copying) content from one course to another in the same Canvas instance would be to use the Course Import tool instead of trying to import from an exported file. If this is the case, then have a look at How do I copy content from another Canvas course?. However, if you are still needing to import a course from an exported file, you'd want to follow this Guide: How do I import a Canvas course export package?
If you could please describe in more detail where your content you want to import is coming from, that would help narrow down a solution for you...thanks!

I have installed an open source version of Canvas LMS . After I have created course content and when i clicked on export course content , It is showing progress to some extent and then nothing happens.
Can anyone tell me what might be the problem?
My guess is that it has to do with the open source version of Canvas. The other option is that the import might be too big. Have you tried increasing the course size limit - from settings?
