KB-000127: Can I use my Impatica content with eCollege? How do I upload it to my eCollege site?

Yes. Here are the Instructions for uploading Impatica files:

When impaticizing your PowerPoint file, ensure that you select to generate a "Zip package" from the "Output Files" tab within Impatica for PowerPoint. To achieve this:
  1. Add a file to the "Source PowerPoint Files" list.
  2. Select the "Output Files" tab.
  3. Within the "Generated Support Files" area, check the "Zip package" checkbox.
  4. Select the remaining translation settings that you require and click on the "Impaticize" button.

Once the conversion process is complete, the following files will be located in the chosen save location:

  1. filename-imp.html (this is the HTML file viewers will see, and is created by Impatica for PowerPoint to play the converted PowerPoint presentation)
  2. filename-imp.jar (this is the converted PowerPoint presentation)
  3. ImPlayer (version Number).jar or ImPlayerWithVideo (version Number).jar (these are the Impatica Players*). 
  4. videofilename.imv (this is the converted video file contained in the presentation. There will be one .imv file for each video file contained in the presentation. Imv files will only be present if there were videos contained on the slides in the PowerPoint file).
  5. filename.zip (this is the zip archive that contains all of the required files for playback of your impaticized presentation).

*Only one copy of each Impatica player is needed. This means that if you have multiple Impatica files in the same directory, you only need one copy of each ImPlayer (version Number).jar file in that directory.

  • Click on the "Upload File" button.
  • A message box will display indicating that the files contained in the .zip archive have been successfully uploaded into eCollege.
  • You will now see the folder that was created earlier visible in the "Course Files" directory structure.
  • Select the "Module" where you would like to add this content.
  • Select the "Add Content Item" button.
  • Complete the information for your "Content Item" selecting "Multimedia" as the type.
  • Click on the "Create" button.
  • In the "Add Existing Content Item(s) to Module X" section of the "Add Content Item" screen, select the newly created Content Item and click on the "Add to Module" OR "Add to Module and Create Drop Box Basket" button.

  • Click on "Go".
  • Select the "I have already uploaded the file" radio button.
  • Provide the text for this link.
  • Select the *-imp.html file that we uploaded earlier and click on the "Add Link" button.
  • Click on the "Save Changes" button within the "Content Item" screen.
  • Your new impaticized presentation link will now appear within the course contents of the selected module.

Editing the Imported Presentation: Once you have imported the presentation into ECollege you cannot edit it directly. If you need to make changes to that presentation, make the changes to the copy on your local computer. Repeat the process for upload as described in this tutorial.
