Inhoud → Bestanden
De Bestanden-zone is een opslagruimte, een plaats waar je bestanden en mappen kunt zetten die je kunt gebruiken in je portfolio. Zowel mappen als bestanden worden als artefacts beschouwd en kunnen daarom aan een pagina toegevoegd worden. Je kunt een onbeperkt aantal mappen of submappen maken. Om te zien welke mappen en bestanden er in een map zitten, kun je op de mapnaam klikken. Gebruik de Home-link om terug te keren naar de hoogste map.
Je kunt de mappen en bestanden schikken door het icoontje voor de bestand-/mapnaam te slepen over een andere mapicoontje. Een goed benoemde en georganiseerde mappenstructuur zal je helpen met de organisatie op lange termijn en met het terugvinden van je artefacten. Als je een bestand of map uit een onderliggende map wil verplaatsen, sleep het dan naar het bovenliggende mapicoontje .
You will find that some folders are automatically created by the system such as viewfiles or images. The viewfiles folder includes files from imported pages whereas the images folder includes your uploaded profile pictures. As with any other file, you can move them out of this folder and store them in a different folder.
You can move files and folders to your heart’s content without having to re-link them in the pages where you use them. Also renaming them will not have a negative impact on links.
3.3.1. Upload een bestand¶
Voor je een bestand upload moet je er zeker van zijn dat dit mag. Voor alle artefacten die je publiceert in je portfolio moet je over de rechten beschikken. Dit betekent dat:
- het artefact van jouw is of
- je hebt het recht om het te reproduceren en distribueren, het schendt geen copyrights en
- het artefact voldoet ook aan de gebruikersvoorwaarden van de Mahara-site die je gebruikt.
It can be that you have to agree to an upload agreement before you can upload any files to your files area. The site administrator decides about that in Administration → Extensions → Plugin administration → Plugin type: artefact: file.
License: You see this field if the site administrator turned on license metadata. Choose the license for the artefact that you are about to upload. You can set your default license in your account settings.
Licensor: You see this field if the site administrator turned on license metadata. If you are uploading a file that somebody else created, you can attribute the work to them here and provide their name for example.
Original URL: You see this field if the site administrator turned on license metadata. If you are uploading somebody else’s file, provide a link to the original Internet address so that others can go there and view the original file.
Upload file: Upload a file by clicking on the Browse button to search for the file on your computer. Make sure that it is not larger than the maximum upload size that is shown in the parentheses.
If the site administrator turned on the image resizing option, you can decide whether you want to have your images resized if they are larger than the specified dimensions. This option is recommended to save space in your portfolio.
Instead of clicking the Browse button to upload files, you can drag and drop files from your computer directly onto the “drop zone”. You must still observe the maximum file size upload for each file and the maximum total file size cannot be exceeded either.
This functionality is not available in all browsers. Generally, users of Chrome 7+, Firefox 4+, Internet Explorer 10+, Opera 12+ (Windows only) and Safari 6+ can use drag and drop.
Type the folder name and click the Create folder button if you want to create a folder before uploading files. Click the folder to upload files directly into it.
Name: You see all your folders and files that are not in folders listed in this table to access them easily.
Description: View the description of your folders or files to know quickly what the content of them is.
Size: The size of your files is displayed here.
Date: The date you created a folder or uploaded a file is shown.
Click the Edit button to edit folder or file properties. Continue with editing a file.
Click the Delete button to delete a file or folder. A pop-up window requires you to confirm the deletion because you will not be able to recover the file once it is deleted. If you use a file in a journal entry and / or on a page, the warning message tells you that this file is in use elsewhere so that you don’t delete it by accident.
If a folder or file is an artefact in a page that has been submitted, you are not able to edit or delete it.
You can move your file to a folder by clicking on the icon before the file’s name and then dragging and dropping it onto the folder icon. Similarly, you can click on a folder icon and drag it onto another folder icon to move the folder into the second one.
3.3.2. Upload meerdere bestanden¶
You can upload multiple files at once in three different ways:
- You can upload multiple files when you are browsing for them after having clicked the Browse button. Hold down the Ctrl key (or Command key on a Mac) and click on all the files that you wish to upload at once.
- You can drag and drop multiple files into the drop zone.
- You can also place all files into a compressed file, a .zip file, and upload that to Mahara. This method allows you to upload multiple files from different folders on your computer at once. You can create a zip file from any number of files that you have selected in your document management program by making a right mouse click and selecting Compress… (or something similar).
Once you have uploaded your zip file to Mahara, you can unzip it there. Click on the Unzip button next to the Edit button . Please follow the on-screen instructions.
3.3.3. Bewerk een bestand of map¶
You can edit the properties of a file or folder at any time. The file does not have to be re-linked in portfolio pages, but the properties you changed will be updated automatically.
- Click the Edit button to edit folder or file properties.
- Name: Change the name of the file (or folder). It is not necessary to keep the file extension as Mahara stores it internally. However, it can be good to leave it in case somebody has problems opening the file if no default programme is associated with the file after downloading it. This field is mandatory and each file (or folder) must have a name.
- Description: Give the file (or folder) a description to find it again more easily.
- Tags: Give the file (or folder) one or more tags. You can choose from your existing tags by clicking on the Show my tags link and then selecting the tags. If you type your tags, separate them with commas.
- License: You see this field if the site administrator turned on license metadata. Choose the license for the artefact that you are editing.
- Licensor: You see this field if the site administrator turned on license metadata. If you are editing a file that somebody else created, you can attribut the work to them here and provide their name for example.
- Original URL: You see this field if the site administrator turned on license metadata. If you are editing somebody else’s file, provide a link to the original Internet address so that others can go there and view the original file.
- Allow comments: Decide if users should be allowed to comment directly on the file artefact page when they view it.
- Click the Save changes button to keep your changes or click the Cancel button to abort the action.
3.3.4. Download folder content as a zip file¶
You can download all files and folders within one folder in one go.
Click the Download folder content as zip file link in order to get a zip file which contains all files and folders of the current folder.
Site administrators decide in the Artefact type: File settings for how long the zip file is kept on the server.
3.3.5. File quota¶
The site administrator of your Mahara site decides how much space you can have to store files. This can vary across institutions. You can check your file quota in the sidebar in your Files area.
