Download Moodle Gradebook and Backup a Moodle Course

MiraCosta faculty and student access to Moodle ends on June 30, 2018. For overall details and advice on the final transition to Canvas, please see Considerations in Leaving Blackboard and Moodle.

This page demonstrates how to download the Moodle gradebook and an entire course in case they are needed after your access to Moodle ends. You may also view similar directions for Blackboard.

Download Moodle Gradebook

It is advised that faculty export their course gradebooks on Moodle so that they are available to refer to if necessary for grade challenges. (See AP 4231 (Grade Changes) for details on circumstances you may want to consider.)

Here is a short tutorial on how to export your grades from Moodle to an Excel spreadsheet.

To ensure student privacy, keep gradebook files in a secure location such as your H: (Home Drive). AIS can assist you with the location of the H: drive for secure, backed-up campus data storage.

Individual assignments can be downloaded if you want to keep student work. Contact Moodle Support for assistance with downloading individual assignments. Specific directions will be based on the tool you used.

Download Moodle Course Archive

Faculty can download an entire course from Moodle as a backup with user data. A faculty member can import the archive file to another Moodle system or Canvas; however, it will only contain course materials and content without student data. For more information on importing a Moodle course to Canvas, please see the migration guide from Canvas.

MiraCosta Online Ed is archiving all Moodle courses and storing them on AIS secure servers. We will work with the faculty case by case if the archive needs to be restored in the future for legal purposes.
