SNAP: Selective Import Content From Other Moodle Courses


You can Import selected content from another Moodle course in which you are enrolled as the Primary or Non-Primary Instructor.  This feature is different from the Overwrite current course process in that it will not erase or overwrite any course material. It is also different from the Import all materials into current course process because it will simply add the content that you select. 

 

How to Selectively Import Materials from Other Moodle SNAP Courses:

1. Login to your Moodle SNAP course and select the course you wish to import materials into. 

2. Click the Admin button

Admin button

 

3. Click Selective Import within the menu that appears under the Admin button.

6. The following page will list all of the content items that will be imported. Select the items that you want to import and click Next. (*This may take several minutes depending on how many and the size of items you have selected to import.)

NOTE:  Moodle will only import the content items that have a check next to them.  By default, ALL items are checked. You must manually uncheck the items that you DO NOT WANT to import.

NOTE: If you notice any sections (topics/weeks) missing after importing materials, check to see if any are under sections labeled as 'orphaned activities.' For more information, please visit Grok article 19964.
