Bulk course upload is a contributed code that creates a course with a teacher and basic course settings from a CSV file. There is also a bulk course deletion tool. These work in 1.8 and 1.9.
==Tips & Tricks==
To use this code successfully,  the site administrator must create the teacher accounts before creating the courses. The role for the teacher in the csv is the role short name. So for teacher use 'editingteacher' and Non-editing teachers use 'teacher' and so on.  The course category must also exist before uploading the file.
The bulk course delete tool uses a txt file with the course short names. One course per line.
Moodle has a unique constraint combining a course's category and its sortorder, in other words two courses in the same category shouldn't have the same sortorder. When inserting courses manually Moodle does the trick of calculating sortorder, but using uploadcourses.php you need to provide a valid value for sortorder, each row should have a different sortorder value in the same category.
