How do I attach a file to a discussion reply as a student?
If your instructor allows file attachments, you can attach a file to a discussion reply using the attachment icon. Attachments can be added to both graded and non-graded discussions.
Any attachments added as part of discussions are copied to your user files. Attachments for graded discussions are not counted against your user quota and cannot be deleted.
- If the attachment icon does not display, this option is not available in your course.
- If your attachment causes you to exceed your user file quota, the file may fail to attach to an ungraded discussion.
- If you have permission to edit or delete discussion replies, editing a reply also allows you to remove an attachment.
In Course Navigation, click the Discussions link.
Click the reply field.
After adding content using the Rich Content Editor to the discussion reply , click the Attach link .
Note: If you do not have a file attachment icon in your Discussion reply, your instructor has disabled this feature.
Browse for File
Depending on your browser, click the Choose File or Browser button to locate personal files on your computer.
Note: Once an attachment is posted to a discussion post, the attachment cannot be deleted.
