Course Files - How to Add a File to Your Course

Students are able to add, or upload, a file to their courses in MyCCRI. A file can be in different formats (for example a Word document, an Excel spreadsheet, a PowerPoint presentation, etc.) however only files that are in .html or .pdf format are viewable on the web. All other files must be saved and viewed in the program they were created in. Files cannot be larger than 1 mg. Files will be available within the course only after approval from your instructor.
