Hi Martin thanks for your fix on the bulk course up loads we managed to load 900 courses in no time at all. We have been reading the comment you made in 2004 and wondered if this has changed. We have played with Learning gateway and class server and this allows a lower base site file access where course files can be loaded from. We can also see the possible solution of using my links and sharing these but it only has a 10 mb file limit. We are looking for a materials repository for each area that can be held on the moodle server and thus accessed outside on line.
Ie when a teacher clicks on add files, that it would bring up a directory on the server containing a repository of files for their area, for them to quickly and remotely load to their course.
Hope you can help. Also how far away is bulk file upload and directory loading?
