What is the Files Area?

Files area is a location within Learn.UQ where you can store and manage files. The Course Files area can be accessed from Files in the Control Panel. To make the files accessible to students, you need to create links to the files from a Content Area (i.e. Learning Resources).

Why would you use the Files Area?

You can move a large amount of content from your computer or network drive to the Files area in one action or upload files while creating content. Once content is in the Files area, you can link it to any place in your course where attaching files is available. You can also use Files area as a virtual hard drive, accessible from any computer by logging into Learn.UQ.

Content in Course Files is considered content for reuse. So you can delete links to files in your course, yet the files themselves remain in Course Files, where you can link to them again. Also, if you modify or move a file to another Course Files folder after it is linked in your course, the link will not be broken.
