Template:Re-using courses and activities

There are several ways to reuse a course or parts of a course. Most of them involve or are similar to a backup and restore process. In alphabetical order:

  • Clone resource/activity -In edit mode use the x2 icon to duplicate the activity or resource (Moodle 2.1 only)
  • Course backup - The traditional way (along with Restore) to take all or parts of a course and duplicate it on the current site or on a different Moodle site.
  • Course restore - Allows taking all or parts of a course backup and adding it to an existing course or creating a new course.
  • Import course/activity - Allows a teacher to go to another course they teach and import elements into the current course. Similar to a Backup and Restore, except it is one process.
  • Reset course - Basically cleans all the activity from the current course.

There are other ways to share your course beside the above:

  • Share within your Moodle - Through permissions and context or a Metacourse, it is possible to share your content in a Moodle site with others.
  • Community hub - tell others about your course or find other courses to use or linkto (needs site administrator).
  • MNet - a way site administrators can network (loosely connect) Moodle sites together.
