  • Click on the Drop/Click to Select Media File button, and browse to locate and select the media asset desired to be uploaded.
  • Drag and drop a media asset onto the Drop/Click to Select Media File button.  Note: Drag and drop is not currently supported in the Internet Explorer browser.

4.      Enter information about this media asset: the Title, Contributor (It is possible to check “Me” as the Contributor), and Description.

5.      Click on Add Media.

NOTE: Students will not be able to see the media uploaded to the Dropbox. Only Instructors can see what is in the Media Inbox. Instructors can choose media assets from the Media Inbox to show in the Course Collection.
