Making files available to students

If your students cannot access a file in your course, or if the file displays a Lock icon, follow these steps to try granting access and resolving the problem.

Review File Status and Publish Settings

In Course Navigation, click the Files link [1]. View the files in your course, and locate any files your students cannot access. A circle with a checkmark indicates that the file is Published [2]. A circle-backslash icon indicates that the file is Unpublished [3]. Students can only view published files.

Note: You may also need to open file folders to confirm that files in folders are also published.
