Hi Mike,

There is are portfolio spaces - a course wide one and one for each

1) Share files
a) Each student could upload his/her file in his/her own portfolio space
and make it public (different privileges possible). These files can be
accessed by the others by going to the personal information pages.
Making the course roster accessible to all course members is helpful
since a link to each personal page is provided there.

b) You, as Course Coordinator, can upload all the files in the course
wide portfolio space. Each student can access it via the main menu.

2) Rank
To let the students rank the files you can create surveys (needing
authoring privileges) or use a simple problem directly in the course.
Surveys are very similar to homework problems but give different
feedback and can't be got correct/incorrect, just submitted status.
Survey reports are also included in LON-CAPA.

Is this helpful?

keep it in one place.
