This local module allows you to restore a course from a remote Moodle instance into your current instance via a REST web service. The intended use case is quick restores from an archival Moodle instance into the current yearly instance.

It is limited to administrators but could in the future be extended for teacher use. Currently it is limited to one pair of source and target instances.

This is alpha code at present. It has been tested in a virtual environment but further testing is needed. Please report back all issues to Github.

    Thanks Charles for sharing yet another plugin with the Moodle community. I did not have an opportunity to fully test the provided functionality. But the idea looks good and the implementation is clean and well readable. While looking at the code, I spotted couple of things that you might want to improve in a future update of the plugin and reported them into your tracker.

    You are cleared to land now, welcome to the Plugins directory!
