Local Content: How do I configure Local Content to access files on a CD?
Local Content: Configure
To access course content locally, your Students must configure the Local Content tool to work with their 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.
If desired, you can also configure the Local Content tool. This allows you to access local content when viewing files from the Teach tab.
Step 1: 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 2: From the Teach tab, under Course Tools, select Local Content.
Step 3: For Status, select On to enable Local Content or Off to disable Local Content.
Step 4: 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 5: 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.
