I use HotPot exercises a lot for my students in Moodle. When I want to upload more exercises/files, it takes very long as I need to do for every single exercise a lot of steps: 1) click on “add an activity or resource”, 2) scroll down, 3) click on “HotPot”, 4) click on “Add”, 5) drag and drop the file into “source file”, 6) click on “Save and return to course”. So if you want to upload 10 exercises, you have to do 60 steps.
Because of this I wanted to ask, if there is a faster way to upload the HotPot files; and maybe more files at once.
Would it be possible for the developers of the HotPot plugin to make it possible to upload the files dragging and dropping the files directly into the course? In the case of image files, it is also possible (see the image in the attachment): Moodle asks you after dropping the file:
“What do you want to do
with the file '20160716_144406.jpg'?
Add media to course page
Create file resource”
If you drop a HotPot file on the course page, it is automatically included as a “file resource”: so it can be downloaded as a file by the students, but they can’t use it as an exercise. Would it be possible that Moodle asks also in the case of HotPot files, if you want to “create a file resource” or if you want to include it as an exercise? (Anyway Moodle takes the settings of the last exercise you created/changed if you don’t change anything manually)
This would help me to save a lot of time!
