  1. Email stream@massey.ac.nz to be given Author access to the Connect server so you can create folders and upload your files.

  2. When you have been given Author access to the Connect server, log in to the server https://connect.massey.ac.nz using your Massey username/password.

  3. On the Connect server, click the Content menu. You can create new folders, so name your folders with their course numbers (Fig 1).

  8. Now when you finish creating your presentation, clicking Publish will send your file to your Content area on the Connect server (Fig 5). Note: There is an option to create an offline PDF presentation, which can be uploaded to your course. This may generate a large PDF however so generally publishing to the Connect server is recommended.

  9. Click on the name of your file on the Connect server and when it opens, copy the URL address in the browser address field.

  10. Paste the copied URL address of the file into a link on your course page, so when students click on that link they will be able to see the file.
