SNAP: Blocks: 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.
