The following explains how to transfer the content of a classroom from the course 2020-21 to a classroom in the 2022-23 course. But the same procedure can also be used for any Moodle classroom of any accessible academic year (2021-22).

First of all it’s necessary to create an empty moodle classroom in the 2022-2023 academic course following these instructions.

Before beginning to move, it is important to make sure that the destination classroom has the same structure as the source classroom. That is, they must have the same format (by topics, by weeks…) and also the same number of items (weeks/topics) to show. These options are accessible from the menu “Edit settings” in the classroom.
In case they don’t have the same structure, the material will be imported as well but it will be disorganized in the destination classroom.

  • Login into Virtual Campus (https://cv.uab.cat).
  • Click on Previous academic year (20-21).
