The Resources tool inside your course can be used in two different ways:
- It can be used as a repository for files used by the Instructor to create the course. Files such an HTML Syllabus and Home Page are stored here and then linked to the appropriate tools. Any images used in the course, such as images in an assessment question, will also be stored here. You can hide the Resources tool from students and just use the Resources to store these files. If you use this option, you will use Lessons to deliver content to students.
NOTE: Hiding the tool from students does not prevent students from accessing the Resources in other ways. You should not store sensitive documents in Resources
- Resources can be the main tool for distributing files to students. If you are not using images in your course, or you do not mind that students see the files, you can organize your content in folders in Resources.

From - Resuse Content in New Semester - In the original course, if you rearranged files in the root folder, those files will be returned to their alphabetical state. If you created folders, the files within the folders will retain whatever order you gave them. You can eliminate the need to reorder files if you create a folder called "Root" and place all other folders and files within that folder. From that point on, the files and folders will maintain the order you establish through import.
