6.4.26 Resources



Figure 6.45: Resources
From the Course Summary page there is a link to the Resources feature. This feature can also be accessed from Course Administration and the Course Tools icon.
Resources can be added in ALEKS at the course or individual topic level. With this feature, instructors can share files, links, and notes to aid student learning. Students can access these resources through the Resources page and/or Explain pages of ALEKS based on the accessibility options selected by the instructor. An example of a resource is an online video that relates to a particular topic in ALEKS.
Instructors can begin by adding resources or by creating folders to organize the resources. Resources and folders can be added at any time and in any order, and folders can be further organized by creating subfolders.
Below are the resource requirements (Fig. 6.45):
  • Three types of resources can be added: files, links, or text-only notes (250 characters or fewer).
  • Valid URLs must begin with http://, https:// or www.
  • There is no limitation on the number of resources that can be uploaded per topic.
  • The file upload size is limited to 4MB per file, and the total amount of resources that instructors can upload in any course is limited to 100MB. Many file extensions are accepted for upload.
