Allow teachers to move multiple files within the course file area

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.

This is already possible.  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? 

Users of keyboard navigation can use the Tab key to reveal hidden checkboxes provided as an accessibility aid to multiple file selection.
