Importing Course Content Overview

1. Importing a Course

In Moodle, faculty are able to Import content between courses within the current version of Moodle (Moodle 3.2). To transfer content from a course that was set up in a previous version of Moodle, use the Simple Restore process.

Follow the instructions below to Import content from a past course:

  1. Enter the course where you would like to deposit the content.
  2. Click on the Gear menu on the top right of your course.
  3. Click Import, located in the dropdown menu.
  4. Select the course from which you would like to Import the information from the list of available courses.
    • You may use the Search field beneath the course list to find your course.
  5. Click Continue.
