I have a folder with linked files in. How do I display it on Moodle?

  • If you have a folder with linked files such as a website with an index.html file or a flash activity with xml/swf and index file then you use the file resource instead of the folder resource.
  • Select "file" from "Add a resource".
  • Follow the instructions for uploading a folder from your computer here. (Note:You can upload zipped folders to the file module.
  • Click on the name of your unzipped folder to get inside it.
  • Click the icon to the right of your index.html file or the file you want to start displaying your linked files from
  • Click "set main file" This ensures this file is the one that appears on the course page for students to click on.


  • Click "Save and return to course".

How do I link to an existing folder?

  • Linking to an existing folder/directory is not possible in 2.0.
  • See this [forum thread]for some ideas.
