    Teachers often import their individual files into the course file area and THEN want to organize these files into folders. Right now, they must move each file individually. It would be great if they could move multiple files at once. Perhaps an interface like Gmail uses where you check multiple boxes and then use a pulldown to select which folder to move the items into.

    Thank you Rob Ditto

    After Better File Browsing became standard 2015-06-06, teachers can use the Move Multiple Files steps in this lesson: How do I move and organize my files as an instructor?
