In the new version of Learn based on Moodle 2.2, you can now drag-and-drop files from your desktop directly onto the module page (ie avoiding the need to upload a file first then link to it). You can even select multiple files to drag-and-drop at the same time. This is now the quickest and most intuitive way to add or update resources on your module page.
In order to do this, you need to use a compatible web browser – Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari NOT Internet Explorer. Loughborough staff: as IE is the supported Windows browser on campus, note that this advice applies if you are using a Mac in your office, or if you are working on your home PC.
