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 automatically 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:

To add a file:
Note: For information on files and repositories, see Files and new repositories.
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.
You can add nested folders for added organization.
