Moodle Course Logs include documentation of all user-submitted comments, documents, responses, grades, etc. User Logs will also contain the most recent 90 days of student activity in the course. 

Course Logs are optionally included during a backup and restore and are typically included when courses are archived offline. Course logs cannot be transferred during an import.
