Note: To upload multiple files at once, compress the files on your computer into a .zip file. A .zip file is a file type where multiple files or folders are compressed into a single, smaller file with a ".zip" file extension. Uploading multiple files to Moodle as a .zip file can save you time because it requires less clicking.
