Files folder in Admin block is visible to Teacher, not to Student

The Files folder in the Administration block is visible to Teacher and Non-editing Teacher, but NOT visible to Students. This allows the teacher to upload all files for the course at one time, then pick and chose the files they want the student to see by making them visible on the course front page.

For a short time this fall there was a permission override that allowed students to see that same file folder in the Administration block. The permissions have been set back to default, which prevents the folder from showing up for students. IF you were using this visible folder to allow students to view files... we can make your Files folder visible on your front page again with the Display a Directory resource.

Should your need this, send an email indicating which class and I'll be happy to make the folder available.

Happy Moodling and stay dry!
