4. Request assistance migrating Moodle course content from previous terms
Returning faculty who have taught with 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 / Canvas Archive Import Request Form. Expect a 3-4 day turn around on these requests. You will receive a confirmation when complete.

5. Join Multiple Sections of a Course to a Single Canvas or Moodle Resource
Faculty teaching multiple sections of a course can join students in these sections to a single Canvas or Moodle site to help streamline management of content, communications, and activities

6. Make your Moodle or Canvas Site Visible to Students
By default, when a new Moodle resource is added to your Course Hub, the site is set to “not available to students“.
