Yeah, I should have explain what I was up to.
I was going to build a couple of courses in on my own 2.2 server and restore them on district 2.2 when it was ready.
My district is migrating to Moodle 2.2 from tried and true 1.9, hence my questions of several weeks ago. My Advanced Placement Chemistry kids have to do work on Moodle over the summer. There were several QuizPorts that were due by July 1 or they would get bounced out. Many did get formal notification that they were being dropped. The district has not been communicative as to when the change would occur. Because we were told to make back ups by the end of June, I would have expected the change over by. I just checked the status of my "help" ticket and it says that they are expecting to have it up by early to mid August.
Now I have more work for the students that will be due at the beginning of school Sept 4. While there are links to videos* they can watch one the old moodle I have hidden the QuizPort. I was planning to have the HotPots set on the new 2.2. I want to allow kids time to get work done should any go on some sort of vacation just prior to the start of school. Also I was going to add some new material.
Additinally, I wanted to start setting up the first-triemester Moodle. I tested out restoring from 1.9 to 2.2 but did not like the results even if it worked. What I have done is restored school Moodle course to my own 1.9 Moodle which I will use as a reference.
Given that HotPots backup and restore 2.2 to 2.2, I was planning on building the summer Moodle and the first trimester Moodle on my own server and then do a quick backup and restore to the school one in a matter of minutes. That way it is working and complete right away.
*My lectures are all online. I have implemented the "flipped class" model for AP Chem.
