Give everyone in the module access to the folder
If you want to provide permission to everyone in the module, i.e. facilitators, enrolled students and guests, tick Everyone in this Module, then click Save.
It is best to select Everyone in this Module if you are not intending to provide specific access for various groups to the folder(s).
Or give selected access to the folder
If you want to provide folder access to a specific group (or groups):
- click (not check) the parent group, then
- check the group(s) you want to give access to.
In the example below, we want to give folder access to Facilitators as well as Tutorial Groups QF1 and QT1. We will:
- Check Facilitators. If you do not check Facilitators, only the module owner will be able to view the folder.
- Click Tutorial Groups (EduRec). (If you check Tutorial Groups, all the groups will be selected.)
- Check QF1.
- Check QT1.
- Then click Save.
Give access to sub-folders
When you create sub-folders (aka a child folder, or a folder within a folder), the default permission is to Inherit permissions from (the) parent folder.
We suggest that you accept the default setting first. Changing sub-folder permissions manually at the point of creation allows you to set contradictory permissions e.g. providing access to the child folder but not to the parent folder.
If you Inherit permissions from (the) parent folder, and you edit the permissions later, you will be shown only the subset of users who have access to the parent folder, making it easy to further restrict the permissions.
