I apologize if this has been brought up before, I've browsed a bit and haven't found something that answers my questions clearly.
I've created a Moodle that will be used by multiple teachers all teaching the same subject (sign language). Due to student privacy laws, teachers cannot have access to each other's courses, so I've created a "top level" course called "Teachers Only Course" (TOC).
Teachers have access to their own individual course (live course that students are enrolled in) and they have access to the TOC (accessible only by teachers).
The purpose of the TOC is for teachers to "import" activities that they think other teachers might benefit from. Teachers can browse through the TOC and "import" any activities that they want to include in their own individual courses.
I've been testing it out by creating some sample activities in TOC, but right away I'm noticing a few things -
1 - The ability to add images/videos in QUIZZES is missing from 2.0 (used to be in 1.9). How can I do this in 2.0 without having to manually embed it with the HTML editor? (Teachers aren't going to be familiar with how to manually add a URL link.)
2 - When I upload a video in LESSONS it doesn't "pop up." If I click on the link, it will pop up, but then (I'm guessing) it tries to load the entire file (it was an mp4 file). So I tried a flv file to see if it would stream that. Unfortunately it loads the player, but gives me an error - can't find the file.
3 - I can't find any way to manage the files I've uploaded. I want to delete, rename, or move files around that were uploaded using LESSONS.
4 - I uploaded an flv using RESOURCES and that file plays just fine as a RESOURCE on the TOPICS screen. However, I need to put that file into a LESSON or into a QUIZ but I'm unable to do so. First, I have to rename it, then it won't play (see #2).
