Uploading a File
When you look at an assignment that requires you to upload a file you see something like this:
Clicking the Browse button brings up a window with which you can locate files in your PC. Select the drive and folder in which you saved your work.
Unless otherwise specified by the instructor, the format of your uploaded file ought to be one that be opened by MS Office programs, since most instructors use those (in general, when uploading files, you should use common formats and avoid the uncommon formats of MS Works (.wps) or Open Office (.swx), because many instructors will have difficulties opening those). In other words, for text files choose .doc (MS Word) or .rtf (Rich Text Format) as file type, for presentations .ppt and for spreadsheets .xls or .xml. If you try to upload a file that is bigger than the maximum file upload size set by the instructor, you will receive an error message.
Once you have handed in your work (as one file), the instructor can access it and give feedback/comments. Usually, you will also be given a grade. You will be notified of this automatically. To see the feedback you can return to the assignment:
