FAQ and Other Tips and Tricks

This page is home to our FAQ, where you can find information on all sorts of things, from useful info about using Moodle and Google Docs to how to give someone access to course materials.  If you have any questions you would like to see us add answers to, please email us.

Since we have many questions answered here, we recommend that you either search by entering a keyword or by choosing a category in the blue box below instead of browsing the entire set.  For ease of use, we have links to broad categories below, but if you are looking for something that does not fit these categories, more are available in the drop-down menu in the blue box.  You may choose to add a focus (second category) to narrow your search.

What do I do if the file I want to upload to Moodle is too big?

If your file is too large, you can put it in the webpub folder of your Courses network drive. Then, you can link to the file. The address for the file can be found at:
http://www.acad.carleton.edu/courses/course-short-name/filename.ext
For example, if you want to upload the picture "Chaucer.jpg" for your English 101 class for the Fall of 2007, the address would be:
http://www.acad.carleton.edu/courses/engl101-00-f07/Chaucer.jpg
For more information on webpub (referred to as Publishing Web Pages), see this web page.
