How do I allow students to upload and modify content in a Resources folder?
By default, students in course sites are not able to upload or modify items in Resources. You can allow students to upload content to a Resources folder, as well as edit and delete their own content, either by editing the permissions on a folder that is available to the entire site or by restricting access to the folder to specific group(s). This article describes how to edit permissions on a folder.
For steps to restrict folder access to specific group(s), see How do I create a group folder in Resources?
- To the right of the Resources folder where you would like students to upload files, select the Actions menu.
- Select Edit Folder Permissions.
Note: On mobile devices or small screens, the Actions menu displays as a down arrow icon.
Under the Student column, select the checkbox(es) for any of the following optional permissions:
- Create resources
- Edit own resources
- Delete own resources
Note: Students will need to be able to Create resources in order to be able to Edit or Delete their own resources.
Pictured above is a student's view of Resources, where students have been allowed to create, edit and delete their own resources in a Student Projects folder. The folders in this site differ as follows:
- In the Actions menu of Student Projects, the student can Add content; for example, options are available to Upload Files and Create Folders.
- However, in the Actions menu of a folder with no special permissions, the student can only View Details on it.
