Occasionally an instructor will provide students with a Word document or other type of file, in addition to a PDF version of the file.  If you have Microsoft Word (or other software appropriate for opening the file), follow these steps:

  1. Click on the file link in the course.
  2. In the browser notification or pop-up window that appears, select the option to save the file to your computer.
  3. Once the file has finished downloading, locate it on your computer (typically in your "Downloads" or "My Downloads" folder).
  4. Open the file to view its contents.

If you are unable to open the file, it is most likely because you do not have the correct software installed on your computer.

For more information on this topic, please watch the Moodle 102 how-to video on "Files and Folders."

If you need help downloading and viewing a course file, please contact SU Tech Support.
