I use Moodle for displaying topics-oriented assignment headings, discussion forums,
multiple choice tests and grading. In other words I try to limit my use of Moodle's
built-in page editing (for each sequential topic) to an entry level page that describes the assignment in words, and then includes links to external HTML pages published by me (using various tools). Moodle is hard to modify. But when I publish pages with my
own tools, I can do anything I want (like limit access to resources).
This works for me because I'm a developer. But I tend to think it would be the
better model regardless. Why should Moodle developers try to duplicate what can
already be done so much better with Drupal, CMSMadeSimple, Joomla, Wordpress
and dozens of other far more powerful and flexible page generation systems.
Perhaps Moodle should stick to the course management role, and leave page
publishing up to major-league software that already does it so much better.
How can I prevent guest users from downloading files from a directory
