Moodle 3.0, 3.2: Import Content from Another Course Site
Applies to: Moodle 2.8, 3.0, 3.2.
You can import resources and activities from a course within the same instance of Moodle. For example, you can import content from one Moodle 3.0 course to another 3.0 course, but not from a Moodle 3.0 course to a 3.2 course. It is possible to Backup or Restore Content across instances of Moodle.
You can find the Moodle instance by looking in the upper right corner of your course site.
Note: The Import feature in Moodle will only import the course structure and activities; it will NOT import student data, such as forum posts or assignment submissions.
