Step 2. Restoring from backup file
1. Restore Page

Settings > Course administration (1) > Restore (2)
Find the relevant backup file listed in the ‘Course backup area’ and click ‘restore’.
Review the content of the backup file and then click ‘Continue’
3. Restore Options:
There are three options to restore a course.
- Restore as a new course – this allows you to create a duplicate course
- Restore into this course- this allows you to merge or overwrite the course you are in with the backup file.
- Restore into an existing course- this allows you to merge into a different existing course or overwrite the course.
The first option allows you to create a duplicate course. Select the correct category to place the duplicate course in (if not listed, you can search for this using the search bar). If you would like to use the other two options follow the same process.
NOTE- Ensure that you have the permission of the relevant course administrator.
Then click ‘Continue’.
Confirm areas for restore (default all selected), then click Next.
Check restore settings (if corrections are needed use ‘Previous’).
Click ‘Perform Restore’.
Click ‘Continue’ to view restored course.
