healthLearn allows you to upload your own files in certain courses. This saves time if you know how so here is some information on how to do this.
Your course tutor can control whether you can make only one submission or can re-submit files, and whether you can upload files after deadlines have passed.
Some activities let your tutor return a submission with comments for revisions. You can then upload your revisions by returning to the link for the activity file.
Submit an File eg. A Learning Agreement
You may be asked to attach files or enter text directly into a text box. Note: If your instructor is asking you to upload a file, they should inform you what file format you should submit. As a general rule - PDF or adobe files work well.Step 1:Make sure that you know where on your computer your file is located if you are uploading a file
Click the link to the activity. The activity page will open, showing instructions and your Submission status (date submitted, grade, etc.)
Click Add Submission. The submission page will open. Depending on how your instructor set up the activity, you may have the option to submit file(s) or enter text in a text entry box.
To enter online text, type directly into the Online text box. Alternately, you can compose your submission in a word processing program and then cut and paste the text into the text box.
When pasting text, for best results paste the content as unformatted text.
For spell checking to work, it must be enabled through your browser. Once enabled, to see spelling suggestions press hold Control key on your keyboard and click OR right-click on your mouse (whether you are using a Mac or PC system will determine which operation will work).
To submit a file using drag-and-drop:
Arrange your computer desktop windows so that you can view both your browser window and your files on your computer (e.g., in an open folder or on your desktop).
Drag files from your computer, and release them on top of the big blue arrow in the Files area.
To browse for a file:
Under File submissions, at the top-left of the file area, click the Add... icon. The File picker window will open.
Select a file from your computer
To upload a file from your computer, click Upload a file (at left), then, next to Attachment, click Choose File. Browse your computer and select a file, then click Open. The file name will appear next to the Choose file button.
(Optional) If you want to rename your file in the file picker, type the new name in the Save as field, and make sure to include the correct file extension (.pdf, .doc, etc.) in the name so the file can open correctly for your instructor.
Click Upload this file. The File picker will close and an icon for your uploaded file will appear in the Files area.
Once your file(s) appear in the Files area, click Save changes.
Your tutor may allow you to revise your submission. Click Edit submission to add or replace files, or edit a text submission. When you are finished making changes, click Save changes.
For some activity types, you will see a Submit assignment button. To finalize your submission, click Submit assignment, then Continue. Once finalized, you will not be able to make any more changes.
You can check under Submission status on the activity page to ensure your file is listed. You can also view feedback and grades from your tutor there.
For some activity types, you may have the option to submit several or an unlimited amount of attempts (or drafts) for a single activity. Because each course is different, you will need to review specific course instructions carefully.
