Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Import course data.

Template:Course admin

Course data may be imported from any other course for which the teacher has editing rights.

1. Select the Import option from the Administration side-block.

2. Next, select the course you wish to import from and click the Use this course button.

3. You will be presented with a check box list from which you can select the type of activities or resources you wish to import.

4. Finally, click Continue when done to import that data.

NB: Selecting forums, for example, will import all forums from that course. Currently you cannot import indivdual items within a module type.

Groups can also be imported as a batch from a file.

Backups, especially in 1.6, offer other creative ways to bring in course material from other courses. See Course_backup or the backup link on the index.
