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.
NOTE: It is important to follow proper copyright processes when adding a file. Equella is also used by the ACU Library as a database for managing and sharing copyrighted online readings. Before sharing copyrighted (textbook) materials in your LEO unit, please visit the ACU Library's "Reading Lists in LEO" page to learn more about how the library's Online Reading team can assist you.
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.
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.
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.
