What's New: October 17, 2020

Files uploaded to WebAssign must meet new standards for size, format, and security.

Major changes include:

  • Students can upload files up to 15 MB to answer questions.
  • Students can upload files up to 10 MB in Show My Work.
  • Instructors can no longer restrict the size and type of files accepted in file upload questions with $ACCEPTFILETYPE and $FILEUPLOADMAX. Older questions using this code will no longer apply the instructor-authored restrictions, and will instead enforce the new WebAssign standards. Make sure your students are aware of any requirements you have for file submissions.

See File Restrictions for the complete file upload rules.
