Description

With the Student Folder module 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.

Requirements

The plugin is available for Moodle 2.7+. This version is for Moodle 3.4.

Installation

  • Copy the module code directly to the mod/publication directory.

  • Log into Moodle as administrator.

  • 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

Documentation

You can find a cheat sheet for the plugin on the AMC website and a video tutorial in german only in the AMC YouTube Channel.
