How to View attached files

Your instructor may attach files that you need to read or use to complete an assignment. Your instructor decides how files will appear, such as inline or as attachments. In the next section, you can view an image that appears inline.

For video and audio files that appear inline, select the title to open them in new windows. You have controls for play, pause, and volume control. For video files, you can view the video in full screen. You can also download the file.

For media files that appear as attachments, select the More options icon to access the menu. Select Download File to open image files in a new window or tab, or download Word documents, PDFs, or slide presentations to your computer. The View File option opens the file on the course page, such as an image.

For image files that appear inline, you can select an image to view it separately.
