There will be a drop down menu that allows you to Upload media, Record a new session (which requires the Personal Recorder software), or create a New Folder in the course. Select Upload Media 


3. Choose a folder to upload to.

You can search for a specific folder, if you were viewing a folder when beginning that will be the default upload location.

4. Once a folder has been selected the upload window will open.

You can upload files from your computer by dragging them into the "Choose video or audio files" area or by clicking and selecting file(s) from your computer browser.

While the video is uploading you can edit the video title.


6. Once the video is uploaded it will begin processing. Once it has reached this stage you can exit the upload screen.
