Keep your course files safe with this cloud backup service

2206

CourseBankAfter you’re instructors have delivered a course, many times it is important to keep it’s associated data safe and secure for future reference and for required archiving purposes. This could be a simple solution for an organization with only one Moodle installation and a few courses, but it can quickly become a burden if you are responsible for multiple installations and a large collection of courses.

The folks over at Moodle Partner Catalyst IT have put together what appears to be a very slick and comprehensive solution to this problem with their CourseBank service. From Moodle.org:

The CourseBank plugin is an admin tool which integrates with the Coursebank cloud backup service. CourseBank allows administrators to push their Moodle Course backups into managed cloud storage and access these backups on demand through the Coursebank interface.

This type of service could offer significant value through time and cost savings by eliminating the need for on site backup infrastructure and staff and processing time overhead. In order to use the service, you do need to register for a license at https://account.coursebank.biz/.
