Uploading your unit Outline

This guide goes through the steps required to upload your Unit Outline so that it shows on the your unit homepage in the Unit Information widget. There is a pre-formatted link that has been set up in every award unit for the Unit Outline to sit in. This link ensures that students are always able to quickly and easily access the unit outline for each of the units they are enrolled in. Depending on your choice in MyLO Manager when creating your unit, your Unit outline will show up as a Word Document or PDF document:
