[edit] Uploading Your Documents (Upload Files)

Files can be added to the Resources by choosing to browse for the file on your device, or on desktop computers using a modern web browser, drag files from an Explorer/Finder window into the Isaak-Sakai window.

To add files follow these steps:

  1. Actions > Upload Files
    Actions > Upload Files
    Inside your course click the Resources tool on the left.
  2. Click the Actions button beside the folder you would like to add the file to (likely the top-most).
  3. Select Upload Files
  4. Drag the file you would like to add into the Drop files.. area OR click upon the Drop files.. area to choose a file from your computer's directory.
  5. Optionally notify your students that the file has been newly added with the Email Notification menu. Note that additional file details, such as a description or custom availability dates, can only be added after upload is complete. If you prefer that students receive notifications after details have been added, consider using the Actions >> Edit Details option once the file has been uploaded.
  6. Done: You should now see the file in your course resources. You are welcome to click the file to confirm it works or modify it via the "Actions" button.

All modern web browsers support single file uploads through the drag-and-drop interface, most support full folder uploads, such a Google Chrome.

Dragging-and-dropping folders can be a faster and more reliable alterntive to situations where the WebDAV upload process might have previously been used.
