Moodle - Backup and Restore
I have a course which is pretty simple, contains a couple of labels and a SCORM activity.
I need to distribute the course to a number of Moodle sites easily. I cant use networking as each site needs its own unique copy of the course to customise it.
1. Backup the course and let the other sites Admin or Course Creators 'Restore' it?
2. Get login details of all the sites and do the 'Restore' manually on each site?
3. Any other ideas?
3a. Does anyone know of a MySql tracker, my idea being that if i take a backup of the mysql database and then 'Restore' the course in Moodle I can actually see what MySql is been written back to the database to track whats going on. Id then need to write some PHP to duplicate this for all the sites?
Compare Original with New = Show me changes made?

Is this really necessary?! I'd suggest option 1, but it's not going to be very easy to push out updates and stuff. Theres no guarantee that your course UIDs would match up across multiple Moodle installs anyway.

If i thought all the course administrators would restore the course correctly then I would hand it over to them. Buck stops with me even though i only oversee the sites and the site admins should be looking after them but as were trying to motivate people were trying to get some original moodle content into there sites.
This functionality would really come in handy,

I think you're stuck with option 2. Moodle multisite is what you need (hmm just googled it and it looks like a few ppl have looked into it)
