How to create a folder structure

Create folders to store files, by clicking on the 'Create folder' button. It is a good practice to create a folder and store individual files as this makes it easier to locate and find information on the same topic, related to an area of study or a unit of study.

2. To add files, you will first need to agree with copyright restrictions. This means either acknowledging ownership or attributing material after checking the copyright box. When you have agreed with copyright conditions you can use the ‘Browse’ button to upload your file. Alternatively select a number of files in a finder window and drag and drop them into the grey dashed box area.

  • You can upload files directly when adding content to Pages, however any content will be placed on the ‘Home’ level of the files area. You can go back to the files area after you have finished the page and re-organise the structure without breaking the links within the portfolio.
  • By clicking on the icon of the file you want to move a drop down of all the same level folders is displayed. Click on the hyperlinked name of the folder to move your file to this location. Repeat if you wish to nest it further.
  • You are also able to navigate your folder structure using the breadcrumb hyperlinks at the top of the files table, which shows your current location.
  • You can download any individual file by clicking on the file icon, or you can download all of your content as a zip file via the link at the bottom of the page.
  • Don’t upload Video files to the portfolio, rather link them from the ‘MyMedia’ streaming server to save file space and provide a superior viewing experience.
