Set Up Server File Repository

The Server files repository enables administrators, managers, and teachers to access files used anywhere on the site where they have permission. This area can be used as the place where files are located in site-specific context. Access to the folders vary depending on the role of each user. The Server files repository provides the following benefits:

  • Access files saved in other courses
  • Re-upload files easily to the course
  • Link or copy files into the course modules
  • Linked files only need to be updated in one place
