Moodle Requests

Requesting integration of an external tool

Anyone wishing to request the integration of an external tool (Examples include: Perusall, Cengage, etc) with Moodle should complete the Process for Requesting Moodle External Tool Integration.

Using a previous version of the course

If you wish, you may use content from a prior course in your current course. For information on restoring or importing course content from another course, see our topic “Reusing Content” in the Moodle Professional Development course.

If, after reviewing the instructions, you are uncomfortable moving materials, the Educational Technology staff is happy to import archived materials into your current course for you.  This will require completing this form and will take a day or two to complete.

Combining sections of the same course

If you are teaching multiple sections of the same course or you and your colleagues teaching the same course want to share resources, you can request to have multiple sections combined into a metacourse by completing this form.
