Re: Document Unpackager





Ah - I misunderstood (I thought it was a web pages zip you were trying to
add), you just want to add lots of files in one go.

Add your files to content system/course files (I like drag and drop but 
you
can do document unpackage).
Then create an item and do link to course files.  Tick all the files you
wish to link to IN ONE GO.  You can even link to a folder (when students
click the folder opens and the students see the course files from that
folder)

Please see the following 2 videos I am using to explain to our staff

(both look best in full screen)
