Backup and Restore of Class Content from Old Moodle to New Moodle

With the introduction of the new Moodle installation on campus, a natural question will be whether or not course material saved on the old server will be available on the new one. To address this issue, ITS has prepared the video below which details the process of backing up a previous course on the old Moodle server and importing and restoring that data onto the new server.

ITS would like to caution users to pay close attention to the process, particularly the part about NOT importing previous participants, and we would further like to emphasize that this process can be undertaken by faculty themselves but we are perfectly happy to perform the backup and restore on behalf of anyone who would prefer we handle it.

If you’d prefer ITS to do this transition of content for you, simply place a ticket in Octopus using this link.

Special thanks to Dr. Mike Teed for allowing us to use one of his courses in this demonstration video.
