A FLO folder is an organisational tool that allows you to structure your topic in a meaningful way that may reduce scrolling on the topic homepage. Students are able to see relational files (e.g. assessment information) in one convenient place.
The folder tool enables a teacher to display a number of related files within a single folder. A zipped folder may be uploaded and unzipped for display, or an empty folder created and files uploaded into it.
A folder may be used:
for a series of files in one module (e.g. a set of past examination papers in pdf format or a collection of images files for use in student projects)
to provide a shared uploading space for teachers on the topic page (keeping the folder hidden so that only teachers can see it).
