      Description

      The Recent Activity block will display that a new folder resource has been created, but it doesn't display anything for new files within the folder resource. This is something that our faculty have been asking for. A sample use case would be a faculty member uploading a slide deck before (or after) class. Right now he's sending an email or making a forum post in order to notify the class that the materials are available. Adding recent activity support to mod_folder would eliminate that extra step.
