Thanks Mary for your response. I was able to migrate my folder/file structure from Moodle 1.9 to 2.2 as you alude to, but I get nervous when uploading files within Moodle 2.2 because I can't find them using FTP. If I'm backing up courses, I just would like to know for sure that uploaded files are getting saved as well. I'm getting other responses via Twitter that uploaded files are getting backed up, so I guess I'll have to trust that this is the case.
Ben: the only way you can use FTP to upload files into Moodle 2 is by first setting up what's known as a "file system repository". (The old way in 1.9 where you could upload to numbered folders for a particular course no longer exists) See here http://docs.moodle.org/23/en/File_system_repository
Files uploaded to a file system repository should be saved when backing up afaik.
Also, are uploaded files to Moodle 2.2 saved when doing backups? Still trying to adjust to Moodle 1.9-2.2 upgrade...
How do I access uploaded files to #Moodle 2.2 using FTP? Where do uploaded files reside? Which folders?
Anyone have experience with Moodle 2.0? I think we are using 1.8.
I have all my classes online which of course means we are paperless for the most part. I still print some test, like the U.S. Constitution, but most are online. We use a project based approach and have the students make podcast, vidcast, presenations, games, smartboard activities, and write research papers etc.
All of this is done in Moodle, or uploaded to Moodle. Moodle makes lessons so much easier to organize and grade. I have heard that 2.0 is even easier to use for these type projects. Trying to get the powers that be to install it over the break this summer.
More than willing to share.
I am admin for a mahoodle site (moodle+mahara) using moodle 2.1. Happy to discuss and contribute anything i can to this group.
Moodle is a great LMS tool! There are so many uses for it! The moodle.org is a great resource for all levels of Moodle users.
Another option for a more hands' on learning approach is to go to www.integrating-technology.com. Nellie Deutsch is a great E-learning facilitator. There are FREE self paced courses and there are paid courses. You can get CEU certificates for your professional training needs, I highly recommend the site. I am just wrapping up the M4T-Administrators class. I have learned a lot about taking care of behind the scenes issues like site security and permissions, as well as theme set up and design techniques. Hop on over and give us a try! New sessions begin in January!
I run several Moodle installations for the primary school I work in. I am not 'techie' but I have learnt so much from the Moodle community so if I can be of any help please ask.
