If you have a course previously taught in Moodle it is very easy to get your content moved over into a future/current semester. You are not required to create your online course component from scratch every semester, we can move your pervious course over to edit and revise as needed.
You will notice that you have access to the last semester under Previous Term Courses, if this is the course you wish to move over you are welcome to go through the steps yourself, as listed below.
If you require access to a course earlier then the last semester you will have to fill out a request and we will retrieve your course from the backups.
To send us a request for a course transfer please complete the form by clicking on Transfer Content:
To perform the course transfer yourself follow the steps below:
