Moodlerooms is proud to release Folder View, a course format that displays activities and resources within a folder that is expandable or collapsible. This course format can display all folders on a page or a single folder at a time with previous and next topic navigations or a jump-to menu, which each allow the student to easily navigate between folders. Editing functionality is consolidated for the course into an area at the top of the page.
