Moodle - Importing Material from another course

Here are the steps to import material from one Moodle Course into another. 

Note: if you are moving an entire course’s content, make sure you have changed the course settings to include the same (or more) number of topical areas as the course you are copying. 

In the course you want the material in:
-Go to the Admin Pane -> Import


In the next window, select the course that contains the material you want to move from the “Courses I have taught” or the “Courses in the same category”

Click on the “Use this course” button.

In the next window, select the material you want to move by checking/unchecking boxes (if you are using most of the material, hit “All” to start with everything checked; if you are only moving a few items, hit “None” to start with nothing checked.)  You can take as much or as little as you want.

At the bottom, select if you want the course files to be copied over.

Then click on “Continue”.  Another screen will come up, hit “Continue” on that one as well. 

The next screen is pulling the data from the old course (this could take awhile depending on how much you are moving).  When it completes, click on “Continue.”

The next screen is a message that you are getting ready for the import.  Click “Continue.”

The LAST screen is that the material is importing into your course (this could take awhile depending on how much you are moving).  When it completes, click on “Continue.”

You should see the additional material in your course now.  You will probably have to shift it around to where you want it.

If you took lots of material over and don’t want all of it available to your students, you can use the eyeball icon to hide it until you want it open (you can hide individual items or the entire topical area).
