For this next part of the process I copied my Moodle 1.9 installation to a local development server. But to save time I didn’t copy the entire MoodleData folder as it’s over 160GB. I only copied the first 20 folders.
As I wouldn’t be using LDAP on this test server (yet!) I changed my admin account to a manual account so I didn’t lock myself out.
I then flushed out the htdocs folder and copied the Moodle 2.0 installation files across so that I had a clean install with no modifications and ran the install script.
“Discover what’s new in Moodle 2.0, how the new features work, and how it will impact you”.
That’s the books subtitle and it really does deliver on its promise.
Now that the term is underway and we have 1 single merged VLE I thought it would be a good time to view some statistics as to how big the Leeds City College Moodle installation actually is. After visiting http://moodle.org/stats/ I realise we are a long way away from breaking into the top 10 but its still not bad for a UK Further Education College.
The new term is nearly upon us and lots of tutors are running about doing last minute Moodle changes to their course areas. One question that keeps coming up is “How do I reset my course and clear last years students?“
The answer is simple, use the course reset feature in the course admin block.
This little gem is often missed and tutors are rarely informed of its use during Moodle training.
