The process for uploading a file in most areas of AsULearn is the same. These steps are for adding a resource file to your course.

See Upload File from Google Drive for those steps.

    • Mac: from the dock, open a Finder window

  3. Select a single file or multiple files from your computer.

    • Alternatively, you can drag and drop a file (as described in Method 1) from your computer into the Files field (blue arrow), then skip to step 9.



  6. From the File picker screen, click Upload a file on the left, then click the Choose File button. Browse to a file from your computer, select a single file, then click Open.



  7. Change any properties for the uploaded file if you want.

  8. Click the Upload this file button; or click the × in the top right to close the File picker and cancel the upload.

    For large files you may need to wait for the file to upload. When the upload is complete, the File picker window will close. For files dragged into the field, wait for the file name to appear in blue text.



  9. Specify any other options on the screen. Click the blue question marks (question) on the screen for help with the options.

  10. Click Save and return to course, and a link to the file should now be displayed on the main course page; or click Cancel to abandon adding the file altogether.

What happens when the file link is clicked depends on settings in the Appearance section as well as how the browser is set up to handle links. File types may be handled differently.
