Drag Files directly from your computer desktop or an application window into a Moodle course.
When uploading files from within an activity, for example, if you are a student submitting an Assignment, or an instructor adding resources using the Activity chooser, you can drag and drop files directly into the Files area. (This avoids the need to use the Moodle File picker when uploading a file.)
Step 1: Arrange your computer desktop windows so that you can view both your browser window and your files on your computer (e.g., in an open folder or on your desktop).
Step 2: Drag files from your computer, and release them on top of the big blue arrow in the Files area.
Note: If adding additional files, when you drag a file over the Files area, the big blue arrow will reappear.
Step 3: Scroll to the bottom of the page and click Save changes (or Post to Forum if attaching a file to a forum).
- This feature works with recent versions of Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Safari.
- Drag-and-drop does not work with Microsoft Internet Explorer 9 or earlier, or Safari 5.x or earlier.
- If you aren't able to reliably rearrange resources that you have just uploaded, refresh the page.
- You cannot drag and drop a Folder of files into Moodle.
