Import Material from Legacy LATTE to New LATTE
Step 1: Backup Your Course in Legacy LATTE
- Click the “Backup” link in the LATTE course Administration Block.
- In the next screen, leave everything checked.
- Scroll to the bottom of the screen. Under “Metacourse” choose “No” (unless your LATTE course combines multiple class sections, in which case, leave as “Yes”).
- Click the Continue button.
- On the next page that appears, click the Continue button. LATTE will begin working on compiling the backup. Wait until the process is finished, which can be a minute or so.
- After you see the words "Backup completed successfully" click the Continue button again.
- LATTE will direct you to your file directory, where you will now see a .zip file starting with “backup” in the “backupdata” folder. Important note (12/10/2013): If your backup file is larger than 100 megabytes, you will be unable to restore your course to New LATTE. In this case, instructors can backup and import their course in sections or request assistance from LTS in importing their course by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
8. Right click the name of the backup .zip file and save it to your computer to keep a local copy outside of LATTE.
Note: Instructor-Created Backups Saved on LATTE Are Deleted after 60 Days
In order to ensure LATTE’s long-term operation, LATTE will only keep instructor-created course backups that are less than 60 days old. Older backup files will be automatically deleted from LATTE once a day. Backup files can be found in the "backupdata" folder within the Files directory of the LATTE course.
Instructors can still make backups of their courses whenever they choose, but they will need to store these backup files in another location outside of LATTE for long-term archiving. If instructors should need to use backup files to restore a course, they should contact the Help Desk for assistance.
Step 2: Restore Your Legacy LATTE backup into New LATTE
1. Open the course in New LATTE that you'd like to import data into.
2. Click on Course Utilities and then click Restore.
3. Here you can upload the backup file which you downloaded from your Legacy LATTE course. You can either click Choose a file... or drag the file into the box. Important note (12/10/2013): If your backup file is larger than 100 megabytes, you will be unable to restore your course to New LATTE. In this case, instructors can backup and import their course in sections or request assistance from LTS in importing their course by emailing email@example.com.
4. When bring course material from Legacy LATTE into New LATTE, you will always choose "Merge the backup course into this course" (the default).
5. The next page will have Restore Settings that you will chose. The default settings are normally fine. Click Next.
6. Then you can choose what you'd like to restore from the backup. By default, everything is checked off, so disregard this page and click Next if you want to move everything.
7. You will then be asked to review everything before you restore your data. If everything seems correct, click Perform Restore.
8. When the restore is finished, a green banner will appear, confirming that everything was restored properly. Click Continue to return to your course page.
