I am on Moodle 2.0.
I have setup a course repository in the file system. I put the folder in the /var/moodledata/repository/ directory, per instructions. I put a few files in it from the server end. I can get to those in the course repository. So, the next question I have is:
- Can a teacher edit this from the web browser?
- I think they can add files to it?
- How can they delete files? If they have a resource file in the repository, such as a word document for an assignment template, can they change that? It appears that they have to re-upload another copy with a new name. This is problematic, as it messes up the link in the course itself.
- Finally, if the files in the repository are pictures, is there a way for students to browse and see previews/thumbnails? I have made a symlink in the repositories to the openclipart folder on my ubuntu server. Very cool idea.
I'm sure there is a better way that I am missing.
