name that course

In managed hosting, some of the course names seem – different from that which we archived.

to confirm that without restoring a local copy of the course, i found and opened the archive zip file.  There is an entry in the IMSMANIFEST.xml file for

-<resources><resource bb:title=”XX10101_12SP  Unnecessary Plastic Objects” identifier=”res00001″ xml:base=”res00001″ type=”course/x-bb-coursesetting” bb:file=”res00001.dat”/>

which references a resource.dat file (specifically the first one – RES00001.dat) which is an XML export of the course_main table for that course.

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
<COURSE id=”_9367_1″><COURSEID value=”xx10101_12SP”/><BATCHUID value=”xx10101_12SP”/><TITLE

We therefore have the course_id, batch_uid, et al including the course_name.
