Students can use the Locker tool to upload and store files. Your personal locker files are confidential, unless you choose to make them public. Group locker areas allow you to work collaboratively on files with others. All locker files are stored in the learning environment, which means you can access them from most computers with an internet connection. The Locker area is not course specific, rather your files from all your courses can be stored in this area. Currently the Locker contains 1000KB of storage space.
The instructor may or may not have this tool available in a course.
You cannot upload applications or programs to your locker. For example you cannot upload files with these extensions..asp, .bat, .config, .dll, .exe.
