Publish questions in the Question Library to a learning object repository

  1. On the Question Library page, select the check box beside the questions and sections you want to publish.
  2. Click Publish to LOR.
  3. Choose the destination repository and whether you'll overwrite an existing object or create a new one. You can publish large files or packages in the background, which allows you to leave the page while the system publishes. You can check the publishing job's status later.
  4. Choose options for whether the object will be visible and/or publicly available.
    • Only you and users with sufficient permission can view hidden learning objects and assets.
    • You can change this option once the object/asset is published to the LOR.
    • Publicly available objects are available to users without an ID and password to Learning Environment
  5. Select the Creative Commons rights you want to associate with the learning object/asset. Creative Commons licensing enables you to retain copyright on your work while allowing different degrees of reuse to other users. For more information go to creativecommons.org.
  6. If you want to remove questions or sections from the package, clear the check boxes beside the question or section you do not want to publish. Clearing a section clears all its associated questions.
  7. If you want to add, edit, or delete metadata, click the Edit Metadata icon. For information on editing metadata, see Adding metadata to a resource manually.

    Note  Associating a creative commons license automatically populates the metadata rights fields with this information.

  8. Click Next.
  9. Enter metadata such as a Title, Description, and Keywords for your learning object.
  10. Click Publish.
