Moodle: Add files and folders to a course

Instructors of record can upload files, such as a syllabus or course readings, to a Moodle course to share them with students. They can also post links to Microsoft's OneDrive service in order to share large files. Finally, they can also create folders that hold several files at the same time. 

Before you start, you will need access to the following:

  • An Instructor of record or Other editing teacher role in a Bryn Mawr Moodle course.

Link to large files through OneDrive

If you or your students need to share files that are too large to upload to Moodle, you will need to share them through OneDrive and place link to them within your Moodle course. Although Haverford students cannot get accounts on Bryn Mawr's Microsoft 365 license, they can access files and folders set to Share with anyone as guest contributors or access files and folders set to Share with specific people, if they have a Microsoft 365 account through Haverford's license. Haverford students are not automatically granted a Microsoft 365, but can set one up. (See Haverford's Software Support.) 

Note: Audio and video files can alternatively be shared through Panopto (the College's audio- and video-streaming platform). See Panopto: Upload audio or video files; Panopto: Share recordings and Panopto: Collect audiovisual assignments.
