Local Content: How do I configure Local Content?
Local Content: Configure
You must configure Local Content to work with your computer's local device (e.g. CD-ROM drive). This is done by establishing the drive letter of the local device that will run the local content medium, as well as the root folder of the local content medium.
IMPORTANT: Due to browser security enhancements, the Local Content tool cannot be properly configured if your browser does not allow access to your local computer. If the instructions below do not work with your browser, try using Microsoft® Internet Explorer 6 as your web browser. To allow access to content locally with the IE browser, you must add your online course server as a Trusted Site.
Step 1: On the Course Menu, expand Course Tools.
NOTE: The placement of this tool in the course depends on the Instructor, and may vary from course to course. The steps below use the left-hand Course Menu as the starting point.
Step 2: Select Local Content.
Step 3: Ensure that the local medium is available on your computer.
For example: The local content, which is stored on a Compact Disc (CD), is in your CD-ROM drive.
Step 4: From the Local Content screen, for Status, select On to enable Local Content or Off to disable Local Content.
Step 5: To map the drive path to the local content folder, under Local Content Folder, locate the title of the local content folder you want to map and, in its Drive Path text box, enter the letter of the drive and the root folder where the files are stored.
For example: The local content is stored on a CD, the letter for your CD-ROM drive is D, and the root folder on the CD is Root Folder. In the Drive Path text box, enter D:\Root Folder.
Step 6: Click .
The Local Content tool is configured. When you click a file link that has been configured for local content, the local content file will now automatically load from your computer.
