Folder Reference Copy
Tyler Steele Tyro
We have faculty that teach different sections of the same course that use the same videos. The D2L integration creates a separate folder for each section and it would be nice to have a folder automatically reference copy what is in another folder. This way when they create a video in the section 1 folder, a reference copy is automatically created in section 2 & 3 folders.
Interesting idea, Tyler. I can see some downsides of automating this. Faculty may have indedendent content in each section and may not want the same content in every folder. Or they may have courses which are merged and cross listed which could complicate automated duplication this.
I could see this being helpful if faculty could opt into it for specific courses, so they get to choose what folders are duplicated.
The reference copy folder would not be automatically created, the user would create it in the course folder. Now any videos you add to the reference copy folder are automatically added to the other linked reference copy folders in other course sections. You still have the ability to have separate content for each course since it could be added to the root or any other folder inside of the course folder.
