# Use Your Own Resource Materials

You can copy images, media, and document files from your computer to WebAssign for use in your classes.

You can make files available to your students in a number of ways:
• On your students' Home page
• In your questions
• In your assignments
• In your announcements

Except on your students' Home page, you can display image files rather than requiring your students to click a link to open them.

The maximum recommended file size is 10MB. You might not be able to upload larger files.

Important: Before sharing images, media, or documents with your students:
• Obtain the image, media, or document as a file on your computer in a standard file format for the content — for example, JPG, GIF, or PNG for images.
• If your content must be opened with proprietary software, ensure that your students will have access to this software.
• Make sure that you have permission to use any materials that you share with your students. Do not share copyrighted materials like music files or content from a textbook you have not adopted for your class.
• When linking to content outside of WebAssign, make sure the web address of the content starts with https:// instead of http://. Otherwise, your students might see a browser warning or not be able to open the link.
