As many Moodlers know, pre-MSOffice 2011 Powerpoint has the option of saving its files in easy-to-view web page format. From inside Powerpoint: File>Save As (Web Pages).
The resultant file comprised a single (hub) html file, and an accompanying folder of html slide pages with associated images.
Before using Moodle, I used to upload the html file and the folder of content next to it, to my web site, and link on the site pages to the 'hub' html file. On clicking the link to the html file, a window would pop up to display the powerpoint presentation for the student, and the only software they would need was the web browser they were using. Cool.
So here's the question: if I want to do this now, how do I upload the html file with its accompanying folder of content, using Moodle's 'Add a resource' function? That function seems only to allow single, unlinked files, it will not accept a whole folder of content.
I could zip the html file and its accompanying folder, upload the zipped file, unzip it (?) and then add the html file as the 'Recource' file, but I can't see a way of unzipping files once they've been uploaded to Moodle. Once things are uploaded, Moodle seems to change the file's name and it gets lost in Moodle's labyrinthine structure. To which place has my stuff actually gone?
How can I keep using my html'd Powerpoint presentations?
With many thanks in advance,
