If you have Firefox installed you can use an add on called Downthemall to download content from a site. I think their main website is down just now but have a look at their documentation / FAQs to see what you need to do.
Oh wait, it does pick up the files I want. But I have to navigate to the final folder level where the documents are to download them.
That's 5 subjects, in three year level, each with 6-8 topics, thought in 3-4 component modules, and each module has its own accompanying power point slides, work sheets in pdf and MS word doc and maybe tests/exam paper...
Ok, it may save me the time to click on the 5 or so worksheets, power point slides and test/exam within a module, but it still doesn't solve the fact that there are so many folder I have to navigate through.
Do you know of a program that can auto navigate? I tried one site rip program but it doesn't support login/password, so I can't use it to do the job.
Looks like that will be my final last resort. The IT department is rather lazy.
Took 5 days (yap, 1 teaching/working week) just to set up my login account.
The network is plagued with DNS and proxy server that times out frequently (had that happen during assembly and class), wifi black spots (the presentation rooms are kind of shielded and they can never get wifi, most of the other area is somewhere between 1-3 bar), there are way too many people using the wifi access point (3x 802.11n access point for about 400 staff and students which almost all having their own laptop and smart phone and same tablet), the wifi is not encrypted so I avoid using wifi like disease (can't handle encryption?).
I told one of the teacher who is also frustrated with the situation that if I am the decision maker, I would let the IT team go.
So I can't imagine how long it would take for them to perform this.
