I would like to save or export the complete set of student postings from a course discussion forum as a bulk text file. The discussion forum is located on my website’s frontpage. I plan to use the student postings as data for my research.
I have already saved backup zip files of the forums (including the moodle xml document), but cannot regenerate the complete set of topics and replies in a text file form.
I have checked various references, but have not found a simple solution. Can someone tell me if this is possible? I would really appreciate any advice.
