      Description

      Problem: Teachers want to backup/restore/import/delete sections of a course. Currently only individual activities/resources or the whole course can be handled with Moodle 1.9. Also Moodle backup/restore/import do not sort the resources and activities according to topic/theme/project, but separate them by tool categories (ie: forums, quizzes, etc.). Teachers often want to duplicate whole sections which include a mix of activities.

      Solution: We have developed a new course format called the "Project Course Format". It has the following four features:

      • section backup
      • section import
      • bulk file upload
      • automatic upload, naming and creation of "resources" in two clicks

      Issues and status: The format has been working over six months in 1.9 production sites. We are still working on issues which concern moving/duplicating on the same course, and handling quiz question categories. Conversion of existing topics to project course format requires manual rebuilding of links.
