Feedback
I don't think there is an easier way to present the significant amount of varied readings, resources and material than how Moodle is currently set up....an option to download a zip of each week to work with offline would help.
Recommendation
Consideration will be given to organising weekly material to be able to be downloaded in a zip file.
Action Taken
Nil.
