  5. Once the files are uploaded into the course content folder, you can then decide what content area you would like to put the files into. Files that are put into the course content folder are not available to students until you add the files to the appropriate content area.

  6. The course content manager offers details about each piece of content listed there. Click on the contextual menus next to each content item for a number of links related to the item.

  7. To efficiently manage updates to your files over time, you can replace the same named item with a more recent copy from your hard drive and the file will be updated any place in your course that you have made reference to the file. The content manager serves a single point of reference for the content that has been deployed in your course.
