We have several courses that contain documents which we classify as Level1, Level2, Level3, etc. We like to have these courses as well as a single overview course that showed all Level1 documents, etc.
So we would have core course like this:
A01 [its Level1 docs, its Level2 docs]
A02 [its Level1 docs, its Level3 docs]
A01 [its Level1 docs, its Level2 docs, its Level3 docs]
And then courses that showed all resources from A01, 02, and 03:
L1 [all Level1 docs from Courses A01, A02, and A03]
L2 [all Level2 docs from Courses A01, A02, and A03]
L3 [all Level3 docs from Courses A01, A02, and A03]
Is there a way to share resources between courses (even if not all resource types then just a directories)?
Have a look at the MrCute Repository for Moodle - especially the latest developments which are aimed at sharing materials rather than uploading into individual courses. Here's the moodle link: http://moodle.org/mod/data/view.php?d=13&rid=1237, or visit the Mrcute 1 and 2 sites at www.learningobjectivity.com/moodle182 and www.learningobjectivity.com/mrcute.
