  • Check the boxes next to the file (or files) you want to be linked in the selected module.
  • Click [Done].  The Content topics will appear at the end of the chosen module  list.
  • The Content listings will be named with the actual filenames.  To provide a more descriptive name in the Content for the files you uploaded you can simply edit each item.  Alternately, rename the files to be more descriptive in the first place (before you zip them!

Option 2: Add from Manage Files

In [Manage Files], identify the files that you would like to link to the Content area. If you have uploaded a Flash-based presentation, you will probably link the “index.html” file. Once you have identified the correct files to link, check the box to the left of each file and click the [Add Content Topics] icon.
