Template:Re-using courses and activities

Please refer to these notes before editing this page.

Course data may be imported from any other course for which the teacher has editing rights. This will allow teachers to re-use instead of re-creating one or more activities and resources(objects).

This feature will not import student or teacher data, such as forum posts and discussions. It will only import the structure of such activities.

How to use import course data

  1. Select the Import option from the Course administration block (see below).
  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 (see below).
  4. Finally, click Continue when done to import that data.
