Manage Media

The Manage Media window is an alternate File Browser accessible at any time from the Tools tab. It provides a method to view and manage both document files (such as word docs and PDFs) and image files stored in the course directory, without having to access them via inserting any Elements, Interactions or Formatters.

Similar to the Image Browser, we have a basic uploader on the left hand side, where users can upload files to the course by clicking the Choose File button, selecting your file and then clicking Upload (alternatively, users can also click and drag files into the window to upload them).

Similar to the File Browser, we also have a list of all the files currently saved within the course (though HTML / TXT pages that make up the course itself are not included). Clicking any item on the list will show a preview on the right hand side, as well as additional information including the file type, file size and the date it was last modified.

Renaming a file

To rename a file, click once on a file in the list to select it and then click the ‘Rename’ button at the bottom of the window.

A popup message will appear, allowing you to type in a new name for the image.

Rename a File window

Simply type in the name and click ‘OK’ and the file will be renamed. There is no need to add the file extension, it will be handled automatically.

Deleting a file

To delete a file, click once on a file in the list to select it and then click the ‘Delete’ button at the bottom of the window.

Delete button

You will be given a popup message to confirm the deletion before it is carried out, giving you a chance to back out if needed.
