Batch Uploading Files into a Folder

To batch upload files you must first create a zip file containing all the files you wish to upload (into your Folder).

For Windows Users:

  1. Locate the files that you want to compress
  2. Select/highlight all of them.
  3. Right-click on the selected/highlighted files
  4. In the menu that pops up, click Compressed (zipped) Folder. (A new compressed folder will automatically be created.  Windows will add copies of the files to the new zipped folder. The original files will remain untouched on your computer).

For Mac Users:

  1. Locate the files that you want to compress
  2. Select/highlight all of them.
  3. Right-click on the selected/highlighted files
  4. In the menu that pops up, select Compress Items.  (A new compressed folder will automatically be created.  New copies of the files will be added to the new compressed folder. The original files will remain untouched on your computer).

To upload your .zip file into your folder:

  1. In your cuLearn course, click on the folder you want to upload to.
  2. Under the Edit drop-down menu, select Edit Settings
  3. Click the Add button (the icon looks like a white sheet of paper )
  4. When the File picker appears:
    • Click Choose file to browse for your .zip file.
    • Once you have selected a file, click Upload this file.
    • Click Save changes
      NOTE: You should now see your .zip file listed in the folder.

To unzip your .zip file:

  1. While still inside your folder, click Edit.
  2. Click on your .zip file.
  3. In the pop-up window, click the Unzip button at the top (right).  All of the files contained within the .zip file should now be displayed (including the original .zip file).
  4. To delete the original .zip file out of the folder (since it is now redundant), click on the .zip file again.
  5. In the pop-up window, click the Delete button at the top (middle).
  6. Click ‘Ok‘ when asked:  “Are you sure you want to delete this file?”
  7. Click Save changes when finished.
    NOTE: All of the uploaded files should now be within your folder.

  2. Locate the file you wish to add to your course home page.
