Here’s a video that highlights one of the easy ways available for converting course content from 1.9 to 2.0 (the other way is upgrading the entire site on which a course has been restored/built).  The process uses ConversionThingy2 (by Peter Friesen), which we’ve highlighted here before [link].  It works pretty well converting the standard Moodle modules but does leave some manual configuration and re-arrangement once the conversion have been restored.

  1. Hello,
    I have just used the Conversion Thingy 2 and it has converted all my labels, activities, resources into Moodle 2 format.

    In Moodle 1.9 I had the Page format and in Moodle 2 I had the topic and collapsed Topic format. When I restored the converted back up file to Moodle 2, all of the labels got sorted into different topics so there is a bit of work re organising for aesthetic reasons.

    On the whole a good program, conversion was completed in a matter of minutes.

  2. May I know if it support for converting 1.9.7 to Moodle2.0? I tried it but the program does not take any actions after I selected my backup file. Any suggestions?
