1.2 Import and export

Importing and exporting questions

Should you wish to export questions from one module and import them into another module you will be offered a range of possible formats. Our experience however is that only one of these is reliable and we recommend that you use 'Moodle XML format'.

Importing and exporting questions with images or audio-visual content

In Moodle 2 images and any audio-visual content are included within questions when exporting and importing. If there are multiple large videos in your questions than it is possible that you will exceed the memory allocated to the export system. If you encounter this problem and your intention is to move questions within OU VLE modules please talk to LTS staff who are able to move questions within the VLE via higher level faculty categories in the question bank (and thereby circumvent the export).
