For 'Files' section: change default name of the downloaded folders

To: change the default filename for course folders that are downloaded (as zipped files)

suggestion/ possible considerations for naming:

  1. The folder name retained as they are in the canvas 'Files' section. (eg. assignments.zip)
  2. First few letters of course-name appended to the filename. (eg. PHYS221_assignments.zip)
  3. Append the date of folder modification at the end of filename. (eg. PHYS221_assignments_07Dec2020.zip)
    (Why: Currently the default filename is "course_files_export.zip". This makes it rather difficult to identify the folders every time a student needs to download multiple folders of the same course or different courses, all of which currently get saved as "course_files_export.zip", "course_files_export.zip(1)", "course_files_export.zip(2)", ... requiring to check them individually for identification and renaming. Including the last date of folder modification in the filename allows one to track the version of the folder.)
