Uploading Files

Uploading files with OU Campus is fairly straight-forward.  While you can also upload images through the WYSIWYG, if you have more than file, it could be a long process.  If you have binary files (like PDF's, videos, flash files, images, etc.), you should upload them through the Upload Admin demonstrated on this page.  After you upload the images, you can still modify them with the WYSIWYG. 

All binary files are uploaded to the production server and do not live on the staging server, therefore, they do not need to be published in order to see them on your live website.

Please download the PDF of Step By Step Guide for further assistance.
