How Do I Move and Organize My Files as an Instructor?

You can move and organize the files in your course by dragging and dropping files or using the Move options for each file. Files are always organized in alphabetical order, so you are not able to rearrange the organizational structure of files, but to locate a file you can always sort files by column.


Open Files

In Course Navigation, click the Files link.


Move File via Move Button or Settings Icon

While hovering over the file you wish to move, click the Settings icon, and then click the Move button.


Select the folder where you want to move the file. The file you have selected will appear as an open blue folder. When you have the correct folder selected, click the Move button [2].


Move File via Drag and Drop

You can also manage your files using a basic click-and-drag method. Click the file icon and drag the file to the desired folder. Once you see the folder highlighted, release your mouse. The file has been moved.

Note: Instructors can drag and drop files from their personal files into course files.

You can also move a file from the right pane to the left pane.


Move Multiple Files

To select multiple files, click the checkbox to the left of each file you want to select. Then select to move the files as above. This will move all the files you have marked.

Note: You can also use the same button to deselect a file.
