Add a document from your computer

  1. In the left sidebar of the homepage, click Dashboard.
  2. In the left sidebar, click COURSES.
  3. Click on a course.

  5. Click OR SELECT A FILE.
  6. Choose a file from your computer.

By default, the title of the document will be that of the file. You can change it by clicking Edit the title.

Audio files cannot be played directly in a course; learners can download them to play them on their computer, or mobile device. Alternatively, you can upload the audio file to an audio playing platform (such as SoundCloud, Google Drive or Genially), then use the embed code of that platform to add it to the course. You can also transform the audio into a video, then add the video to the course.
