Moodle: Ways to Restore or Import Content into a Course

GROK Overview Banner

PLEASE NOTE: If you would like to save any content from courses after the term is over, you have several options. The first option that we strongly recommend is to import the content into a Master Course. For each course you teach, you can get a single Master Course created. Instructors can use a Master Course to create and store content for a course to be taught in a future semester. Students do not get enrolled in Master Courses. For instructions on how to request a Master Course, please see Moodle: How to Request a Master Course. The second option is to download and save the content to your own computer (file size must be less than 500MB to import back into Moodle).

Ways to Restore or Import Content into a Moodle Course:

Moodle allows those in an instructor role to restore Moodle courses with other course backups or to import content from one course to another. Below is a list of different options which allow you to restore or import course materials into a course.
