The File picker assists students and teachers in uploading, downloading and organizing files. The File picker uses Repositories that can contain PDFs, HTML, Multimedia, word processing, presentations or any digital contentfiles that can be linked from an activity, resource, course section, or for a direct download by the student.
Files in Moodle 2.0
For those who have come from an older version of Moodle. The "files" link is gone from the course administration but do not panic. 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.
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.
Student views of files
Using the add resource menu, the teacher can give access to a directory (folder) and everything under it.
Files made by aCourse backup are not available to students and teachers without the correct Permissions attached to their Roles. If available to the user, these will be found in the course administration menu.
