For most content, it is common practice to upload pre-existing files. You can also copy and paste text from word processing software directly into the text fields of UB Learns. If you type directly into the text box you will risk losing your work in the event of a technical malfunction.

  • Instructors can use the Edit Mode button (located in the top right corner) to make changes to content from within the course view, instead of navigating through the Control Panel to edit content.
  • It is recommended to keep a local copy of all documents saved in UB Learns.
