  2. In your course, turn on the course editing functionality by either:
    Clicking the “Turn editing on” button in the upper right corner on your course page.
    Clicking the “Turn editing on” link in the “Settings” block in the left column of your course.

  3. Once editing is on, click the “Add a Resource…” drop-down menu in the week/topic to which you wish to add the Resource.

  4. Choose “File” from the drop-down menu.
