How to bulk import activities or resources in a course?
 

Hi There,

I'm a new adminstrator of a moodle site.  running version 2.3.3 on a linux CEntos 6.3 server.

I want to create several courses with each about 10 topics, and in each topic about 20 Mp4 movies as Resources for people to watch. Right now i'm creating each Resource seperately, giving it a title, uploading the data, etc. but it costs my a lot of time.

Is there a way to to this in a bulk process?

There is one way, but I am not necessarily hopeful of its success. Create a course repository, zip up the resources and upload them to the repository. UInzip the file inside the repository, then use resources. The internal security features of Moodle 2 have not always been helpful here, the file manager has added another layer of complexity. Cheers...
