The Import function produces similar to the backup and restore procedure, however if there is no need to keep a separate backup file, then this mechanism may be the quicker option.  The main difference between the two methods is that the import function will not allow you to import user data (such as the scores associated with a particular quiz or a student’s contribution to a forum).

The process will involve navigating the Import wizard.

Step 1
  • Go to the course that you want to import content in to
  • Locate the Administration block and click the Import link (the course import page appears – as shown in the image below)


  • Select the course that contains the data that you wish to import
  • Press the Continue button
Step 2
  • Select the backup settings you require


  • Press the Next button
Icon

You do not need to select all items, just those which you would like to carry over. i.e. You do not have to 'Include groups and groupings' as per the image above, you can deselect this option.

Step 3
  • Select the content or resources to include(as shown in the image below)


  • Press the Next button
Icon

As previously, you do not need to select all items. Just select those which you would like to carry over. i.e. You do not have to 'Include groups and groupings' as per the image above, you can deselect this option.

Step 4

A confirmation screen appears.

  • Review your settings and click the Perform import button. (the import may take a few minutes – depending on the amount of data being imported)
Step 5

A confirmation message will appear when the process has been completed

  • Press the Continue button to return to the course (which will now contain additional the imported data).
Icon

The location of imported data within your course will reflect its location in the course from which it has been obtained.  If the content was originally located in topic 11, it will appear in topic 11 when imported.  You may need to amend your course settings so that you can see topic 11 in the new course – at which point you will be able to see (and relocate) the imported content to a more appropriate location.
