Do you have a file on your computer you'd like students to use in a lesson? You've come to the right place!

  • Step 1: After you've created the lesson, add an Activity and select Add Resource.

  • Step 2: Select the File Upload button, then click Browse.

  • Step 3: Locate and upload the desired file on your computer.

  • Step 4: You can re-name the file if you'd like, otherwise, click Save.

  • Step 5: Add a title and instructions.

  • Step 6: Add an image (optional). For best results, use an image with a ratio equivalent to 300 length x 200 width. *If this ratio is not used, the image will be seen in full by the student but a blurred background of the uploaded image will be added to fill the blank space. See below 👇

  • Step 7: Click Save.

When the student accesses this activity, there will be a button that says Download. The student will click that to access the file you uploaded.

💡 Tip from the Otus Team: You may see a 6th activity option that says "Add External Tool". For more information, click here. Note that this 6th option does not play any role in adding an file as described in this article.
