Moodle 2.5 or Earlier
If you are using Moodle 2.5 or earlier you will need alternate backup files from Jon Fila. However, Moodle is no longer supporting version 2.5 and it is recommended that you update your site.
Recommended Moodle Implementation
There is a lot of content in each course, which can be overwhelming to new users or may duplicate content a teacher already uses in their LMS, so it is recommended that you import the MPCC course into its own course, separate from the one a teacher will use with students. By enrolling the teacher into the MPCC course as a teacher, they will have the ability to selectively import activities of their choosing into the course they use with students.
