Moodlerooms – Folder View format updated for Moodle 2.8

July 23rd, 2015

The folder view course format from Moodlerooms has been updated for Moodle 2.8 recently.

Folder view format is a course format that displays activities and resources within a folder that is expandable or collapsible. This course format can display all folders on a page or a single folder at a time with previous and next topic navigation’s or a jump-to menu, which allow the student to easily navigate between folders. Editing functionality is consolidated for the course into an area at the top of the page.

This course format mimics many of the features of ANGEL folders, making previous ANGEL users feel more at home within a Moodle environment. The plugin was also developed with an eye towards consolidating the editing functionality in Moodle’s Topics and Weeks course formats.

The benefits of the Folder View course format are:

  • Consolidated editing functionality for blocks, resources and topics
  • Expandable/collapsible folder areas
  • Single folder display with jump-to menu for accessing other folders
  • Easy addition of topics/folders to the course without editing the course settings
