Uploading File Topics

There are two ways to upload files to the Content tool:


Using Drag and Drop

To create a Content topic by dragging the file from your computer and dropping it into D2L:

Please Note: D2L has a file size limit of 300MB. Files larger than this will not upload to D2L.

1. In the menu on the left, click on the module where you would like to place the file(s).

2. Locate the file on your computer that you'd like to add.

3. Drag and Drop it into the module you'd like to add it to. You can drag it over the module name in the sidebar on the left or to the target area under the module name in the center of the screen. You've hit the right spot on the screen when it highlights a different color.

Drag Content to Target Area


 

 

 

The Target Area is only available in Content modules that are empty. Once you've uploaded one file to the Content module, you can still use Drag and Drop to upload files, but when Dragging the file in, you'll be looking for a gray line that will indicate where the file will be listed once you drop it in.
