The LEO File tool allows you to upload and display a variety of resources in your unit, such as a PDF copy of your Unit Outline, the PowerPoint slides for your lecture, or an Excel Spreadsheet. How students access and view the file is dependent on choices made in the file tool settings. These are set to open in a 'new window' by default but this will depend on the type of browser the student is using. Also note students will only be able to open your files if they have the appropriate software on their own computers.
The File tool is not suitable for the purposes of assessing students, as only lecturers can upload files directly to a LEO unit. Its primary purpose is to 'push' information through to students.
For example, you could create a file within LEO that contains:
- Unit outline (PDF);
- written text such as instructions;
- citations for additional readings or academic papers.
Additionally, students are able to upload files to Assignment, Database, ePortfolio, Forum, Glossary, Kaltura Media Assignment, Text matching (Turnitin), Wiki, and Workshop, if the file submission is part of their assessment.
The File enables lecturers to provide a file as a resource. Where possible, the file will be displayed within the unit interface; otherwise students will be prompted to download it.
The File resource can be used to provide draft files, student are required to download, edit and resubmit for assessment.
If you are interested in the File resource, you may also be interested in learning more about the Book resource. The Book resource is a series of sequential pages (or chapters) which can be used to display dynamic content.
- To learn more, please read our LEO Guide, Book.
Alternatively, if you are interested in creating a dynamic series of pages which are non-sequential, with the added capability of embedded Quiz questions, you may like to lean more about the Lesson activity.
- To Learn more, please read our LEO Guide, Lesson.
A Page resource is a dynamic webpage, where you can add text, images, embed video content from YouTube, Vimeo and Kaltura. It also allows to attached files within the page where you can build a context around your content.
- To learn more, please read our LEO Guide, Page.
All these resources or activities use a text editor to enter text and add interactive elements to the resources and activities with your LEO unit.
