Quickly Copy Activities in Moodle 2.1

I’ve been playing with Moodle 2.1 today. If the testing goes ok (and you can try it on here ) it should be Out on July 1st. Amongst the new improvements is the ability to copy activites -something that has often been requested. One example is if you have an assignment and you want to give a different deadline to different classes. Currently, while you can make use of groups or groupings, you still cannot give different deadlines without making different assignments. Until now, if you wanted to copy actitivities, you either had to recreate them from scratch or use the “import” or “back up/restore” feature. There has been a successful Sharing Cart module which allows you to copy, but it was a contributed module and so many of us just weren’t able to have it and get to copy items quickly.  Until now 🙂 Check out how to copy activities in 2.1 below:

  1. Mary, that’s great. Used Sharing Cart a lot, but this is a nice function.

  3. Note that with the Quiz module, since Moodle 2.0, you can have different deadlines or time limits for different groups.

    (And if any developers are interested in adding this to other modules, have a look at the quiz code. The approach that was taken makes it fairly easy to do, and could be applied to other modules.)
