Reorder files or folders within Resources

From EdTech Help

Anyone with access to view Resources sees the reordered items in the desired order. If an instructor wants students to go directly to Resources to locate content items, this feature allows the items to be placed in a specific order. Or, if you have used the Add a Web Content link in Sakai option to place a Resources folder into the Tool Menu, the reorder feature controls the placement of items on that page as viewed by site participants.

The process is the same for reordering both files and folders. However, items must be within the same parent folder in order to be reordered at one time.
