Working with Multiple Files

It is possible to upload several files directly to the Manage Files area of a course offering to make it easier than uploading files one at a time.
  1. On your local computer, create an archive containing all the files you want to upload. This file will end in a .zip extension.
  2. In your course offering, go to the Manage Files area by selecting that choice on the Content page (or on the Edit Course page).
  3. Click the Upload link and select the archive file you created in step 1.
  4. Unzip the file by clicking Unzip from the dropdown menu. 

Now you can create content topics for these files in a couple of different ways.

Method 1 (Create content topics while on the Manage Files page):
  1. Click in the check box for each of the files you want to make a topic and then click the Add Content Topics icon.

  2. On the Add Multiple Topics page, you must select a Parent Module for all of these files then give them a title. Click Add when finished.

Method 2 (Create content topics while on the Manage Content page):
  1. Click the button to Add New Topic and select Course File.
  2. Select Parent Module and create a Title.
  3. Click the Browse button to find the file you uploaded and press the Select File button.

  4. Click Save.
