Managing Resources

The resource tool enables you to create, edit, organize and delete modules and topics in your unit. The resource area also enables you to link to other tools in CloudDeakin that you are using, which means you can set up the resource area to provide one area for the students to access their learning materials from. For example, you can provide links to:

  • Assignment Folders
  • Discussion Forums/Topics
  • Deakin Video Class Recording and Seminars
  • Quizzes
