Moving multiple files

These instructions explain how to install a program that will allow you to move multiple files and whole folders between your computer and a particular Sakai site's Resources tool. This involves using a protocol called WebDAV, and a client program you install first, called Cyberduck.

Windows Installation of Cyberduck

Mac OSX Installation of Cyberduck

Using Cyberduck

Note: If you simply want to upload a few files to the Resources tool one by one, you don't need to install Cyberduck. In Resources, just click Add > Upload Files to the right of a folder. Then, click the Choose File button, find the file you want to upload, and click Open. If you want to upload more files, click Add Another File and repeat the directions above. When you have finished selecting the files you would like to upload, click the Upload Files Now button at the bottom of the page.
