Additional Assistance for Importing Moodle Course Content From Previous Terms –AKA “Rollover”
Returning faculty who teach with MIIS iLearn (Moodle) should be more or less familiar with the Moodle Course “rollover” process of importing archived course content from previous terms into a new Moodle site. To request additional assistance with your course archive import, use the Moodle Archive Import Request Form. Expect a 3-4 day turn around on these requests.
