Import questions into Question Library from a file

Overview  : The Question Library serves as a centralized hub for storing, organizing, and accessing course-related questions. It allows you to import questions from Quizzes, Surveys, and Self Assessments, facilitating efficient transfer between courses via Copy Course Components. Import options include CSV files and learning object repositories. Note that when importing into surveys or self assessments, Question Library details like answers, point values, and difficulty indicators are automatically excluded. Additionally, Likert questions, unique to surveys, cannot be imported into quizzes and self assessments.
