In a staging area you how more power over your courses than you would elsewhere in Moodle. You can:
- Create, Modify and Delete Moodle Courses placed here
- Common uses of the Staging Area include…
- Experimenting with Activities and Resources (Sandboxes)
- Course Development (DEV)
- Shared online resources such as office hours or announcements between classes (with the help of Meta Course Enrollments) or just manually enroll students or other teachers
Should you be unable to find a course that was in your staging area you can ask that an archive of the course be restored.
