1. Drag and Drop a File
  2. Adding Files Through the Add A Resource Menu

cuLearn allows instructors to easily add files to their course page, such as a course syllabus or lecture slides. You can upload any type of file (e.g., PDF, Excel, Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, audio and video), but the file size should be small to ensure students can access it.

NOTE: The Maximum file size for uploads is 500MB.

There are two methods for uploading files to a course page: 

  1. Drag and drop the file onto your course page
  2. Upload a file resource to your course page
Ensure that you review Carleton’s copyright information and guidelines
