Creating Folders

Before beginning the steps below, gather all the files you would like to use during this process into one central location. This can be the desktop of your computer, or a folder on a USB key, wherever they will be easy for you to find in the middle of this procedure.

  1. Log into myPlymouth
  2. Select the myCourses tab and the myCourses window appears.
  3. In the center column, select your class title from the appropriate semester category in the myCourses channel. You will now be looking at your course's home page.
  4. Click on the Turn editing on button in the top right corner.
  5. Navigate to the topic/week of your choice, and click on the + Add an activity or resource menu.
  6. Choose the Folder radio button and select Add at the bottom of the window.
