Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video Uploading files for students to download, part of Moodle 2.8 Essential Training.
- In the last video we looked at how to organize…a Moodle course, so now we need something to organize.…Files are some of the most common resources…we can provide students.…They come in different flavors, as you can see…when I scroll to this folder containing…a PowerPoint, a PDF document, and an MP4 screencast video.…Now let's learn how to upload a file of any format.…First, turn editing on if you haven't already done so.…I'll do it with the button in the top right corner.…Then, scroll to the appropriate topic area…where you want to add a file.…
I'll start with an empty one.…Click the Add an activity or resource link…in the bottom right corner of that topic area or section,…scroll down to the resource area and select File.…Then click the Add button at the bottom.…On this page, enter a Name,…and a Description if you like.…You can drag or drop the files,…or use the Add button,…browse your computer using the Browse button,…and select your file.…
When you're ready, click the Upload this file button,…scroll down again, and click Save and display…
