New in the Plugin Repository: Recent Files Block


Here’s a cool block that lets you showcase what newest files have been uploaded to a course. As a student you can see the files and docs uploaded and even pin them in the case the final project paper instructions are posted as a PDF and you don’t want to lose them. The Recent Files Block is available for Moodle 2.8 and 2.9.

According to the description,

The recent files block provides a moodle block which shows a configurable number of the most recently uploaded or modified files (mod_resource) and folders (mod_folder) in the course resources of the courses the user is enrolled in with a startdate somewhere within 7 months from the current date, thereby filtering possibly stale courses. It also provides an option for the user to pin files and folders for later reference.

The block was developed and contributed by Omer Ilhan. Download it here:
