Where do I put my files?

Where you choose to upload your files depends on whether the files are for the general Course or if they are specific to certain Events.

1. Files uploaded to the Course Level apply to all Students enrolled in the Course and are not tied to a specific Event or date.

  • Examples of general Course files might be a syllabus or a recommended reading list for the Course.

2. For files that are specific to a particular Learning Event, you'll want to upload at the Event Level.

  • For Example, a reading assignment or link to review other files prior to an Exam.
