4.9. Folder

The folder module enables an instructor to display several related files inside a single folder, reducing scrolling on the course page. A zipped folder may be uploaded and unzipped for display, or an empty folder created and files uploaded into it.

A folder may be used
  • For a series of files on one topic, for example, a set of past examination papers in PDF format or a collection of image files for use in learner projects
  • To provide a shared uploading space for instructors on the course page (keeping the folder hidden so that only instructors can see it)
In organisations, the folder can be used to save documents in one place.
