The File picker assists students and teachers in uploading, downloading and organizing files.

Files in Moodle 2.0

Template:Moodle 2.0

Note: File handling in Moodle 2.x has been changed. Teachers will find the file Repositories in the new File picker.

The File picker will show up when there is a need to add or edit a file. For example, when a teacher wants to add an image, they might select "add" in the content area of the "Updating a resource" page and the file picker popup window will appear.

The file picker system will allow teachers to upload files from their hard drive, access files on the server, or from external sources. It will also allow them to organize them

Courses that have been upgraded to 2.0 will see a "Legacy course files" link in the course settings menu. "Legacy course files" link only exists for upgraded courses. The 2.0 file picker is available from within the context of any activity or a resource that uses files.

Using the add resource menu, the teacher can give access to a directory (folder) and everything under it.

Special areas
