Allowing students to upload and share files in Moodle
Sometimes an instructor may want to have students share files with the class. By making a permission change, students can upload files to a Moodle Folder. Note: students will be able to view and delete any files in this folder.
Create a folder.
Click the gear menu, and then click Turn editing on.
Select the “Folder” option under Resources and click the [Add] button or just double-click the “Folder” option. Hover over a topic block then click Add an activity or resource.
Enter a name.
Click the [Save and display] button.
Click the gear icon and select “Permissions”.
To allow students access to upload and view/manage others’ files:
Select Student from the “Advanced role override” drop-down menu.
Set Manage files in folder module to “Allow.”
Set View folder content to “Allow.”
Click the [Save changes] button at the bottom of the screen.
