How Do I Preview a File as a Student?

You can preview a file in a course, group, or user file storage area.


Open Files


In Course Navigation, select Files.


Open File


In user, group, or course files, click the name of the file you want to preview.

Note: Some instructors will lock files or folders so students can't access them. Also, some file types may not render a preview.


Preview File


The preview displays the file and file information details. Click the file if you wish to download it.

You can scroll through the document, zoom in and out, and view the document in full screen.
