Re-Use a Course

Once you develop a Moodle course, you can re-use it in later semesters. To do so, import the content of a developed Moodle course into your current semester's empty Moodle course shell. It is recommended that you take this step only at the beginning of the semester when your current course is still empty.

To do this:

  1. Log into Moodle and open your current course.
  2. From the Administration block, click Import.
  3. From the Courses I have taught drop-down menu, select the course you want to copy. Click Use this course.
  4. On the confirmation screen, keep the default settings or make changes as needed and click Continue.
  5. Continue through the remainder of the confirmation screens.
  6. Check your new course to make sure the import went as expected.

Tip: this step will import only course content, not student data or student work.
