Moodle 2: How To Upload Documents Within a File Resource


Upload Documents Within a File Resource

Files can be uploaded within the Content section of a File resource. These files can be accessed by your students when they click the link to the resource. This differs from uploading files into your Private Files Area, because files within the resource cannot be accessed or linked from other resources or courses.
