Just as it's helpful to download assignments all at once in a zipped folder. So it can be helpful if we've typed some feedback into those assignments into a document which we can then upload, in bulk, for our class. Moodle will automatically know to match the feedback to the correct student. So in this video we're going to do just that. So we're in our course and we first of all need to check a setting in the actual assignment. So if we scroll down to the section where we have our assignments, Assessment and Evaluation, and we're going to click on Wizard of Oz Presentation.
This is where we downloaded the students assignments in a previous video. We need to edit the settings of this assignment. So in the Settings block, Assignment Administration, we click edit settings. And we need to look at feedback types. And in the feedback settings we're going to check the box Feedback Files Yes. This will then enable us to upload in bulk our feedback comments as documents. So if we now scroll down and click Save and Return to Course, I'm going to go back to the desktop to where we downloaded the students' files in the earlier video.
So I'll minimize my Moodle course here, and we're inside the folder of the student assignments. What I can do is then go into these and add my comments, these are presentations, but I could add comments to Word documents, for example. And then when we're done, it's important to keep the names exactly the same, because Moodle will then know to match this feedback to those named students. We then need to select each of them. And then I'm going to right-click and click Send to Compressed Zip Folder.
I'm using a Windows computer. If you're using a Mac, the process might be slightly different, but we need to compress all of the feedback files. The name we give the feedback file doesn't matter. The names for the student files are vital that they remain the same. Okay, so we have done that. So we are going to go back to our Moodle course now, and click on the assignment again. And then, click the link, View, Grade or Submissions, to get back to the grade book. And now, when we go to the grading action drop-down menu, we have the option, Upload multiple feedback files in a zip.
And so we're going to click that, and then we're going to click the button Choose a file, to go and find that feedback folder, which is on the desktop. So I'm choosing upload a file, and then we click the button which might say choose file, or browse, according to which browser you're using, to locate our feedback file. So we click to open it. We don't need to change any of the settings, but when we click upload this file, we're then going to follow Moodle's instructions for importing them.
So we click the bottom input feedback files, then we're asked to confirm that this is what we're going to do, because Moodle will then match the files to the students. And we now see that three users, so we're only three students, have their feedback updated and three files have been added. And when we click continue, we're taken to Moodle's grade book. And if we scroll over to feedback files, we can see that we have added feedback in bulk for our class. And so in this video, we looked at how we can upload feedback files in document form to our students, instead of giving shorter feedback directly on the assignment.
