Adding a Folder in Your Course Moodle ISU
The Folder resource allows you to create a folder containing various files with one link on the front page of your Moodle ISU course. You can then add files to the folder and all the students will have access to them through the folder link. Files are listed alphabetically. The folder resource replaces the directory in previous versions of Moodle.
This guide will help you to:
You can either add files to your folder individually or you can add a zipped file (and unzip the files).
Note: To add a file, see Adding a File to Your Course.
Note: You will now see two folders with the same name – one will be the zip file and the other the unzipped folder. Once you have unzipped the folder, you will need to delete the zip file.
Add a Sub-Folder
You can add a sub-folder for further levels of organization. This will aid in retrieving your documents, as your files will be in an easier place to locate.
You can add nested folders for added organization.
Note: Above the content buttons, you will see the path (i.e., Files Path: Files►Name of your new folder).
Change the Name of the Folder
To distinguish your folders from each other, you can name each one.
To change the name of a folder:
