Faculty, as we near the end of the semester, it's time to backup your Moodle course pages. Going forward, to save money and storage space with Moodlerooms, we will only keep courses for one year. Courses from the Spring of 2012 and older will be deleted on June 1st.
It is a simple process to backup and download your courses for storage on your computer. Here is a video to walk you through the steps.
Here are the steps in text form:
Enter your course page
On the left side of the screen, click on the “Backup” tab/block
Click on “Next”
(NOTE: you have an option to bring over all the student/user files if you wish. If you don’t want or need student contributed files you can Click on NONE)
At the bottom this page click on “Next”
On this next page it may be helpful to rename the file something that will help you identify it.
At the bottom of this page click on “Perform Backup”
Please be patient, this may take a while.
If all goes well, then you should see a message that a backup file was successfully created.
Click on “Continue”
On this next page, scroll down a little until you see your backup area
To the right of the file name, click on download.
IF the file size is over 500 mb, contact Paul Iwancio 410-225-2506
NOTE: You will want to save this file for later semesters. We will only keep courses for one year on MICA Moodle, then they will be deleted to save storage space.
