File Upload

Files, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, PDF, can be uploaded when working on an activity. Examples of an activity where you would upload a file would be an assignment, turnitin assignment, or forum.

How to upload files?

The most convenient way to upload files is the drag and drop method. Just open the folder on your computers’ desktop (containing the file), select, hold the left mouse button, and move the pointer to the box and release. You will see that the file is uploading to the course. Make sure that you are using an up-to-date browser: Chrome 11, Firefox 4, Safari 5, IE 10

Alternatively (or if you are using an old browser) you can click to “Add” > Upload a file > Choose the file on your computer and click the “Upload this file” button.

If you experience any problems, check the file size / extension and your browser version.
