Adding a document collection allows you to post course and assignment information directly into LaunchPad, including syllabi, rubrics, assignment sheets, and support documents.

Expand the unit to add content

From your home page, open the unit to which you want to add an HTML page and click Add to this Unit.

Select "Create new"

Click "Document Collection"

Add title and description

Enter a Title, Subtitle (if desired), and Directions for your assignment. Then click the Attach a document! link.

Upload a document file

Click Choose File to browse for a file on your computer. Enter a title in the Document Title field. Click Upload.

Save documents

Attach and upload as many documents as you need to. If you accidentally upload the wrong file, click Remove next to the file you want to remove. When you are finished, click Save.

Set due date and points (optional)

In the Assignment tab, you can optionally set a due date and points in the gradebook. Note that the only grading option is Full credit on completion. This means that as soon as a student opens and views the assignment in LaunchPad, they will get the full amount of points.

After you make any changes here, click Assign.

Change visibility (optional)

If you want to hide the document collection from your students, click on the Settings tab. Select the Hide option you want and click Save.

Click "Done Editing"

What students will see

When students click on the Document Collection in the table of contents, they will be taken to a page that includes a link to download each document included in the collection.
