      Description

      THIS IS AN MUA PROJECT PROPOSAL THAT WILL BE SUBMITTED FOR POSSIBLE MUA FUNDING. ANY EXISTING TRACKER ITEMS THAT THIS MIGHT DUPLICATE SHOULD BE LINKED TO BELOW.

      Overview

      A course copy function is working already in Moodle, but there is no user interface for it so far, we at BFH / Bern suggest such an interface to be implemented.--- Some work has already be done in MDL-56537. There's working code which has to be polished and finalized.
      The course copy user interface will provide the possibility to copy a course with or without user data. It will have a workflow similar to the backup / restore wizard, but which is streamlined for copying a course.

      User Interface Elements could look like this:


      Summary

      Project size: small
      Audience: all
      Target users: administrators / managers

      Goals

      A user interface for course copying is to be implemented. Goal is to be able to copy directly, without the backup/restore process or CSV upload.

      This reduces the required steps for copying a course from 2 to 1 and especially there will be less data clutter (i.e. the forgotten .mbz files of backup/restore-process on the server) to purge. The same counts for creating a course and importing some content.

      User Stories

      1) As an admin/manager, I should be able to copy a course within the "course and category management" interface e.g.:
      .../course/management.php?categoryid=...  action-menue for a course should have an additional entry for copying the course. Followed in the workflow by the obligation to choose the name / location of the copy. And a similar workflow sequence as for the backup process.

      2) As a teacher (if given the capability), I should be able to copy a course to a course category I'm allowed to by using the cog menu.
