Example uses of exported files

  • GIFT and Moodle XML formats can be imported into the Lesson module And Question bank via an import question process.
  • Exported question files on one server, can be imported into another Moodle site/server
  • GIFT and Moodle XML formats can be tweaked to create word processing or spreadsheet documents suitable for paper tests or vetting.
  • In case you want to convert your Moodle XML file into text format upload XML to http://moodle.heroku.com. It automatically generates *.txt with your questions
