Bulk course upload for 2.3+
Group Particularly helpful Moodlers
Is there a version of bulk course create via CSV that works for Moodle 2.3+? (Just to save me making a ton of courses manually) I've visited the tracker item http://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MDL-13114 I've seen the other discussion here: https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=173705&parent=854771 As to getting this functionality into core, Michael's comment on the tracker is vaguely hopeful "Thanks to the people who have contributed to this issue. It looks to be a popular improvement worth considering" 143 votes on the tracker. Looking at the comments on the tracker, this seems to be another case of deciding where the feature creep should stop. A simple CSV upload can become very complex when you want to also include kitchen sinks. -Derek

 Totally agree with this. The current method using creation when impirting users is not always viable for some establishments. To be honest I am supprised this is not already a feature

I have managed to do a bit of a hacky fix to get this working for us. Using good old Excel to save the day. 

 

Ive had a look at the tabels it seems you only need to put the datya in the Course table. So following an IMPORT Query in the following format. I have got Excel to create my FULL INSER query for MySQL. Fired it off and all the courses were there. 

Some tweeking was needed but for a 10 minute job I now have all courses in the database. If you need advice drop me a line.
