Drag and Drop File Upload

Overview

onCourse 2 introduces a very convenient drag and drop feature. You can now drag a file directly from your desktop into a course topic area; the message "Add file here"  appears during this procedure.  Be sure to turn editing on first, then drag the file over the page and you'll see the dotted rectangle appear -

Drag and drop can also be used when uploading a document via the file picker (add an activity or resource > file).  In this case, drag a file into the file picker box with the blue arrow and this will automatically upload it to your course. If your browser does not support drag-n-drop, the file picker also provides the capability of using a traditional file upload interface.

Note:  Minimum browser requirements for the drag & drop feature are:  Firefox v4 (Firefox is the recommended browser), Internet Explorer v8, Safari v5, Google Chrome v11, Opera.
