Upload multiple files to Moodle

Posted on August 31st, 2009 by

Getting ready for classes and thinking about uploading a lot of pdf articles to your Moodle course page?  Be sure to watch this video which demonstrates how to combine multiple files into one compressed file before uploading them to Moodle…it will save you a lot of clicking.

For Mac users: After you select all the files you want to compress, hold down ctrl as you click with your mouse and choose “Compress X items”.

    This is another good thing to know about, but my video files were too large for the zip file option, which is still limited to 100MBs. I did, however, get GTS to up my Moodle upload limit to 500 MBs, which means I can have my Power Point presentations with the video files embedded within them uploaded to Moodle. It makes my job much easier.

    Thanks for the tip, Kyle, that will be helpful. Slight technological glitch with this post, though: I couldn’t view the video in Internet Explorer, only in Firefox.

    Great blog with super content for faculty and those of us who support them! Your Moodle tip is great… if you are interested, we started creating mini instructional videos last year on some of the basics of Moodle and plan on expanding them, as well as including other topics.
