This Moodle 1.9 / 2.x block allows you to drag files directly from your desktop onto a Moodle course. It should not be installed on a Moodle 2.3 site as it will clash with the built-in drag and drop upload.
It works with recent versions of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome, but not with Microsoft Internet Explorer (IE version 10 should have the required functionality). It has been tested with Windows and Linux and should work anywhere that the above browsers run.
- Install the block in the usual way
- Add the block to a course in the usual way
- Turn editing on (in the usual way) - the block does not show if editing is off
- Select a few files from your desktop and drag them onto a course section
(I will not always update the version on Moodle.org when there are changes)
