List Resource Materials on Your Students' Home Page

You can add any file as a resource for your courses. You can determine which resource materials you want your students to see, and which are for your own use only.

Important: Only the course creator can add resource materials to a course. If you are not the course creator, contact the course creator listed in the Class Settings page to request that your resource materials be added to your course.

Tip: If you are adding resource materials for a course with multiple sections taught by different instructors, you might want to rename resource materials to identify either the instructor or section. This helps each instructor to identify her own resources since the list of resources displays the resources for all sections of the course.
