Backing Up Moodle Course Materials

Last week we posted a note describing how to export grade book data from Moodle to Excel. Today I’m going a slightly different direction – backing up any or all of the resources and activities in your Moodle course. The backup file you’ll wind up with can be restored into another course on any Moodle server. Please note that the Teacher role doesn’t have enough access to include student data in your backup file.
