File upload

Introduction

When you wish to share with your students a simple file (for example, PowerPoint, Word document, Excel, etc.), you can use the 'File' resource type. It allows you to upload and display a variety of resources on SOL. 

Where possible, the file will be displayed within the SOL interface; otherwise students will be prompted to download it.

Please note: that students need to have the appropriate software on their computers in order to open the file.

With editing turned on, it is possible to drag and drop your files directly onto your page, which is quick and easy.  Simply manage your files locally (so that you have a copy) and drag and drop them onto your unit's front page.

For more information about managing your files and repositories, please take a look at the File management & repositories book.
