Importing Content and Enabling a Moodle Course

Moodle courses are now automatically created from our Course Schedule.  If you need to merge several courses or any other changes, please submit a workorder with specific details. 

Please follow the directions below to prepare your course for students.

  2. In the Administration block, click Import.
  3. In the Search field (at bottom) enter the course name and click Search.
  4. Under Select a Course, select the radio button for the course to copy, then click Continue.
  5. Under Backup settings, check the types of content to copy (activities and resources, blocks, filters, calendar events, and/or question bank); all will be selected by default.
  6. Click Jump to final step.
  7. Depending on the size and number of items to copy, the import may take a few moments. You should see a progress bar as the import process proceeds. Once the import process is complete, a confirmation message appears.
