Community Resources

 

 

The Resources tab is a place where files and links can be stored and viewed by all members of the community. These resources are not related to assignments, but serve as more of a self service resource that community members can utilize. Resources can be organized by a broad categorization, so content can be personalized to members and is discoverable as part of the Search function. Any file type can be uploaded here, however there is a file size limit of 25 mb.

Note: While anyone in the community can view resources, only community super users are eligible to create resources. These permissions are determined by your institution.
