2.1.4 Display a directory
This resource allows the students to view an entire directory (folder) at once. The directory and the files in it must already exist (they can be added using the â€œFilesâ€ link in the â€œAdministrationâ€ block). It is a great way to make many files available using just one link. To add a directory, select it from the â€œAdd a resourceâ€ menu:
This brings up a screen like this:
Name â€“ this can be anything you like (it does not have to be the same as the name of the directory).
Summary â€“ this is a short description of what the directory contains. This helps students quickly determine if the files will be relevant to what they are looking for.
Display a directory â€“ this drop-down menu allows you to pick from any directories (folders) that you have created for your classroom. These directories must already exist (they can be created using the â€œFilesâ€ section of the â€œAdministrationâ€ block). Note that if you pick a directory that has other directories (folders) inside of it, the students have access to those files as well.
Visible to Students - If it is set to â€œShowâ€ will allow your students to see this page. If it is set to hide, your students will not see the page (useful if youâ€™re still editing it!).
When you are finished, click on â€œSave changes.â€
