      Description

      We'd like to be able to put any type of resource into a folder, not just file and other folders. We see folders being used to collect reference material. As such we don't want it in the topic/week display since it will visually overload the interface. At the moment our solution is to create reference "topics" at the end course but this make them easy to miss when the student needs them.

        I've put this into our Dev backlog, but please check out the new FolderView course format that was developed by MoodleRooms that we're hoping to release with Moodle 2.1. If that satisfies your needs, we can probably close this issue.

        Another option is the Collabsible formats...

        The folder view format doesn't really do it. Basically, that's just a topic format with a different interface. It doesn't deal with the situation of the instructor who wants to make a large amount of reference information, usually files and web links, available as part of a topic or week without visually overwhelming the students. By allowing for a hierarchical structuring of material using folders the amount of information the student is presented with at any given time can be limited and organized logically. It's really files and links that we want, but if that's implemented, adding the rest of the resource types should be fairly straight forward.

        I believe this is now resolve as we have the one-topic-per-page setting on courses from 2.3.
