Directions for moving content from a Moodle course site to a new course site:
If you need to import a course prior to Fall 2013, please email Moodle@colby.edu and make a request.
Step 1. Go to the new course site and locate import under the gear/cogwheel icon (top right of your course site). Click Import.
Step 2. Choose the old course site from which you want to import content. Click continue.
Step 3. In Backup settings choose Include activities. Click continue.
Step 4. Now you can choose exactly what you want to bring over to your new course. IMPORTANT: Be sure to deselect the Announcements forum (previously called the 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.
