Once again I find myself struggling with copying between courses.
One of the key things about Moodle is how you are going to set up your courses... If you have a lot of educational content, which topics are separate courses and which topics can be in one course but separate topics...
I'm sure you are all struggling with this. Do I make one course called 'English' and inside that course I have topics called 'Grammar' and 'Vocab'... or do I make two separate courses for this.
Now it happens quite often that over the years come new insights. Topics become courses or... courses become topics within a course.
I find it really difficult to merge courses in Moodle. Importing just overwrites all topics. Inserting empty topics at the start of a course and then importing works sometimes, but still you often end up with moving imported resources/activities around.
There's a plugin called 'Sharing Cart' which helps as well. Or the 'mass action block'. Yet I feel there's basic Moodle functionality missing here.
What if... when importing from a course... you have one step between. A screen that actually asks you where in the course you want the imported content to show up? You import from course X section 1 does not always mean that you want it imported in course Y section 1. Might be section 2 where you need it.
Can someone relate to what I'm saying here? Sharing content between courses should be a lot more easy than the current 'import' option?
