30-140 Participant Folder


The course element Participant Folder offers a direct file exchange between Participants and Coaches. When creating it, you can select two folders: the Participant Drop Box via which Participants may - unseen by other Participants - hand in files to a Coach and the Coach Return Box where Coaches can return files to single or all Participants.

The Participant Folder offers 100MB of space. If necessary, you can request an increase of this space. To do this, please write an e-mail to e-campus@uibk.ac.at with the following information: title of the course/group and the title of the folder.
