A 'General Question' - My organisation has an educationally-based Moodle 'account' with multiple courses all still built on / housed on (ie they are still using) Moodle Version 3.1.
I am being told it is a BIG JOB to upgrade/move to a more recent version of Moodle and to be fair for all the courses across all the departments, it probably is a fair amount of work ... (plus the time for the many many 'teachers' to get up to speed with a more recent version of Moodle. ) and 'they' say things like ... "Oh it is a compatibility issues ... " or "People will 'loose' stuff like plug-ins they currently using etc .."
BUT - in general, would it be possible to 'zip - download -save - export' a current course built-in Moodle Version 3.1. - and then (just) - 'import - upload- unzip it' into a more current version of Moodle (either V3.7.2 OR V3.8.2)? (sorry my 'terminology may not be 100% correct but I hope you know what I mean)
I do appreciate that through this process there maybe some 'formatting' (?) issues or even other anomalies - but I am happy to work through these as 'a test case' ...
My question is 'overall' Is this doable? - OR - in reality woud it be better / faster / less hassle to just start again in a more current version of Moodle overall.
Thank you ..
