Allows instructors to collect assignment files through a WordPress site.
The MLC Assignment Uploader was created to allow instructors to collect assignment files through a WordPress site. The instructor simply adds a WordPress shortcode to a page or post identifying the course section, course semester and assignment title.
mlc-assignment-uploader section=”COSC 3301-48F” semester=”Spring 2011″ assignment=”Unit 1 – Editing Digital Images”
The upload form only appears if the user is logged into the site. Files are uploaded to the mlc-assignments folder in the uploads folder of the WordPress site. Folders are automatically created for the semester, section, assignment and user.
Example folder structure:
A confirmation email is sent to both the instructor and student when a file is successfully uploaded.
Files can be downloaded using your cPanel file manager (or whatever file manager your web host provides).
- Create a folder in the `/wp-content/plugins/` folder called ‘mlc-assignments-uploader’
- Upload and unzip the files to that folder
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Place the shortcode in a posting or page. (See description)
