How do I share files with students?

It’s nice to share. And it’s easy too. You can distribute files from your computer to your students through the lab monitoring tool.

Once you are logged into the TMS, click on My Calendar at the top of any window. This will open up your Instructor Calendar. Find your class in the calendar, and click on the class name to open the Class page. Click the Monitor Labs link. A new tab will open up with all your class’ active lab instances displayed. In the Instructor Files box, click the Share Files link. Click the Upload File link and the Choose File button. Navigate to the file you want, select it and click Open. Click OK through the steps to add the file.

A pop-up will appear in each student’s launched lab, regardless of what virtual machine they are working on, informing them that a file has been shared by the instructor and how to access that file.

Please note, the lab monitoring tool is only available in classes running on Standard or Premium labs premium.png, not to classes set up using the Basic labs basic__1_.png experience level. The Premium premium.png and Basic basic__1_.png icons show on the class page. Standard classes do not have an experience level icon. For more information on Basic and Premium labs, please see the following article: What do Basic and Premium Experience Levels mean for my classes?
