How to upload a module material document

  1. Log in.
  2. Click "Website Admin" at the top-right of the screen
  3. Click the "Modules" box.
  4. You will see the list of modules that you have access to. Next to the one you wish to edit, click "Select Module".
  5. Click "Manage content".
  6. If no files have been uploaded for this module yet, you may see an error message reading "Error: A repository is required for this module/year. Create repository." If so continue to step 7; if not, skip to step 11.
  7. Click on "Create repository".
  8. In the drop-down menu that appears, select the current academic year.
  9. Click "Add repository".
  10. Click "View module content (admin)" at the bottom of the page to return to the module content management page.
  11. Look under the heading "View module content". You will either see the text "There are no categories.", or some subheadings like "Lecture notes", "Assignments", etc. These are categories into which you can place files. If there are no categories, or none of the existing categories seem appropriate for the file you wish to upload, proceed to step 12, otherwise skip to step 17.
  12. Click "Add category".
  13. Enter a name for the category, e.g. Lecture notes, Assignments, etc. This is the heading your document will appear under on the module resources page. You can add more categories for different types of documents later by following the same procedure.
  14. You can leave "Rank" blank, or enter a value. The rank determines the order in which the categories are displayed on the module resources page, with lower numbers appearing higher on the page.
  15. Click "Add category".
  16. Click "View module content (admin)" under "Other options" to return to the module content management page.
  17. You should see a button labelled "add file"; click on it, then:
    1. select the category (heading) for the file to appear under;
    2. click "Browse..." and select your file;
    3. give it a file title (which is what will be displayed, e.g. "Lecture 6");
    4. "viewing status" should be left as the default;
    5. "viewing options" can be left blank;
    6. you can leave "other options" blank too; among those options, "Rank" determines the order of items within a category, and "Additional information" specifies optional text to appear beneath the link to your file;
    7. now scroll to the bottom of the screen and click "Add resource".
  18. You might want to go back and do more, so click "View module content (admin)" at the bottom of the page just generated.
  19. To inspect how it looks, click "Core modules" or "Supplementary modules" at the top of the screen as appropriate and navigate to the module you just edited.
