Inline Viewing Supported Formats

When you submit a document through an Assignment, that document is converted to a format that is viewable inside a web browser. Supported document types that can be converted are Word (DOC, DOCX), PowerPoint (PPT, PPTX), Excel (XLS, XLSX), and PDF (PDF).

The converted document is displayed in a viewer on the assignment attempt page. Formatting and embedded images of the original document are preserved in the conversion.

The viewer is supported on current versions of Firefox, Chrome, Safari, and Internet Explorer. No plug-in or other application is necessary.

Note: If you have uploaded a file that isn't in a format supported by the inline viewer, then you will not see the viewer.
