Another way to upload many files into Moodle 2

  1. Last time we started from “Add folder” to get to the handy drag-and-drop file upload control in Moodle 2.
  2. This time we do not want to create a new folder, but work within an existing folder (better for categorizing lots of files).
  3. Browse into the folder and click edit

  15. Split your files into smaller segments

  17. And be patient, there is no visual indicator of progress, or any action, after the drop), or else you get duplicates:

  19. Just delete duplicates you might have created:

  22. click on each zip file and choose “unzip”:

  26. Delete the zip files (not needed anymore)

  28. Finally, click “save changes”

  30. Note, by working within a folder, you cannot link directly to the new folder you created.  It should however be easy enough to navigate to it if you send the link to the root folder, here “Interaction”.
