Adding resources improves the value of your course. Resources must be free, related to your lecture topic, and in no way promotional.
Types of Resources
Downloadable ResourcesThese resources can be any filetype like .JPG, .PDF, .ZIP, .XLS, .MOV, .MP3, etc. Unfortunately, source code like .HTML, .JS, etc., cannot be uploaded directly, but these files can be uploaded in a .ZIP file. The maximum upload size for any individual file is 1 GB, but there is not a limit to the number of files you can upload. Files can be uploaded to your course directly, or added from your library using the Bulk File Uploader.
External ResourcesTheses resources are hyperlinks to free websites.
For development courses, only Python and Ruby files can be uploaded at this time.

If you want to upload multiple resources, upload a .ZIP file for your students to download.
