What can be uploaded?
Files, links, text, pictures, videos, YouTube, audio, Google Drive, and OneDrive
There are four ways a student can upload the various media listed above; the method will depend on how you, as the teacher, plan to use the file. To grade it, you can create an Advanced Assessment or Rubric Assessment. If you just want to view and comment, without attaching it to a grade, you can have them upload it into their portfolio or attach it to a blog post. Want more details on each of these? Read on!

- The File Upload question type allows students to upload a file for review by the teacher. This question is non auto-scored, and the accepted file extensions are: JPG, GIF, PNG, PDF, TXT, CSV, RTF, XPS, Microsoft Word, Powerpoint, Publisher and Open Office documents. Files to be uploaded must be less than 10MB.
- Create a Rubric Assessment. There is no extra step to require an upload, it is a built-in feature to a Rubric Assessment!

- When students select Choose File, they can use any of these various file types.
