Directions for moving content from a Fall 2013 Moodle course site to a new course site:
Step 1. Go into the new course site and locate import in the administration block. Click on it.
Step 2. Choose the old course site from which you want to import content. Continue.
Step 3. In Backup settings choose Include activities. Continue.
Step 4. Now you can choose exactly what you want to bring over to your new course. IMPORTANT: Be sure to deselect News forum. Your new course site will automatically have this built in. You don’t want two! Click continue.
Final Step. You now get one last look at what you have selected. Click confirm import and you are all set. Check your new course site to look at what has imported. You can always delete items, if you change your mind.
