Student Folder

With the module student folder (mod/publication) students can upload documents which can be made visible by teachers. This facilitates publication of student's documents in a course and improves exchange of knowledge.

Example

The student folder has two features: on the one hand participants can upload their documents in the student folder which can be made visible for other students immediately after the upload or after the teacher's approval. On the other hand it is possible to import documents from the activity assignment. Here teachers can decide which documents should be visible to all participants or name individual students to release documents.

Installation

Copy the module code directly to the mod/publication directory. Open the administration area (http://your-moodle-site/admin) to start the installation automatically.

Admin settings

An administrator can adjust the default settings for the student folder instance-wide in the general settings page. There he can specify the following:

  • Require activity description
  • Obtain approval
  • Approved by default
  • Maximum number of attachments
  • Maximum attachment size
  • Hide ID-Number

    Hi Ricardo,

    We already did. But until we are able to upload it here for 3.2, you can get the MOODLE_32_STABLE Branch from our github repository at: https://github.com/academic-moodle-cooperation/moodle-mod_publication/tree/MOODLE_32_STABLE?files=1

    Cheers,
    Philipp

    You may download a cheat sheet here: http://www.academic-moodle-cooperation.org/en/module/studentfolder/.
    In addition you may watch two german tutorial videos on YouTube; see http://www.academic-moodle-cooperation.org/module/studierendenordner/ for links to the videos.

    What is the main difference to the database-activity?

    Dear Andreas,
    the Student Folder is not really comparable with the database activity.
    Do you have any specific questions concerning this plugin?

    Hi!

    Thank you very much for sharing your work.

    I would like to ask you 2 questions:

    1. Is it possible to create more than one folder for students (as if the folder was an activity)?
    2. Is so, is it possible for students to upload more than one file in each folder?
    3. If so, it does Moodle show the date each folder was uploaded?

    Thank you so much!

    Hi Óscar!

    ad 1) The student folder is a regular activity module and therefore you can add as many student folder instances in a course as you like!
    ad 2) You can define how many files can be uploaded by students via a setting per student folder instance.
    ad 3) In the student folder's table with the public files are the dates displayed when the user's/group's files have been updated the last time.

    I hope that helped you!

    Cheers,
    Philipp

    Hi Philipp,

    Thank you so much for your kind and quick answer!

    If have 3 more questions, if you don't mind:

    4- Can users see the files that other user uploaded? If so, can this be avoided? (i.e. Separate groups, like data bases)
    5- If the user uploads more than one file to a folder, does Moodle display when the user's/group's files have been updated the last time FOR EACH FILE (not for the whole folder)?
    6- Can this activity (student folder) be graded?

    Sorry for bothering, but I don't have full administrator rights in the Moodle course I administrate, and before I ask the ADministrator to install this plug in I need to make sure it does what I need, and I also need to write a report proving it... :S

    Thank you so much!! smile

    Hi again Óscar!

    ad 4) You have a setting to let the files be visible directly after being uploaded OR the teacher has to approve the files before they are visible for other students!
    ad 5) There will only be displayed the whole "submission" has been updated (the date the most recent file got uploaded, replaced, deleted, etc.)
    ad 6) The student folder can not be graded. If you want to grade the submitted files, you should use Moodle core's Assignment activity. You can then use the student folder import every submission from the Assignment instance.

    Cheers and you're welcome!
