Best method for uploading multiple layers individualy to ArcGIS Online?

I have an ArcMap mxd with a dozen or so layers that I want to publish to ArcGIS online as individual feature services (rather than publishing the entire mxd as a feature service).

What is the fastest way to move these layers to my ArcGIS online account so they can be used in a Web Map?

It seems like options for uploading are:


  • Create a Layer package that publishes online, but this seems to only create a downloadable version of the layer, not one that can be added to a web map.


  • Export each layer to .shp, but this requires separate zip folders for each layer (not a big deal but not super convenient).


  • Create a separate mxd for each layer (also not very convenient).


  • Or???

Ideally, I'd like to keep the symbology I set in ArcGIS when uploading these layers, but that doesn't seem to be possible. I'll probably export to zipped .shp files but was hoping there might be another option.

Thanks,
David
