3. Download materials block

The Download Materials block provides a way to download multiple files from a Moodle course at one time. You may choose to download files from a single section or from the entire course. If the block has been added to the course, it will be available to both instructors and students. However, students will only be able to download files that are not hidden from them in the course. This block is disabled by default, you need to add it to your course if you would like to enable it (Turn editing on > Add a block (bottom left of the drawer) > download materials).

Other improvements:

- It is possible to set a 'Grade by' reminder in assignments
