Uploading Files into QMplus Hub

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

For: Staff and StudentsApplication: QMplus Hub

Files can be uploaded and stored in your personal ‘Hub’ files area. You can manage your files by organising them into folders and subfolders, just like you do on a computer hard drive. You can use these files in portfolio pages, assignment submissions, as well as adding them to blog entries or in your CV (which you can make available to potential employers). Files can be uploaded individually or you can upload multiple files at once.

Step 1: Upload a file

  1. Login to QMplus Hub and click on Content in the top navigation bar.
  2. Select Files.
  3. Tick the Upload file check box in order to enable you to select files to upload and that you have permission to upload the file (you must have the right to use the file you are uploading otherwise you will be breaching college regulations on copyright).
  4. Select Choose files to access the file picker, and choose a file from your PC, a memory stick or web server.
  5. Select the file you would like to upload and click Open. The file will be uploaded to your personal area. Alternatively you can drag and drop files onto the hotspot area of the page.

Step 2: Uploading multiple files

Adding files to a ‘Compressed (zipped) folder’ or zipped folder, enables you to upload multiple documents in one go – it can be a great time saver when you need to get a lot of content into the ‘Hub’.

Firstly you need to create a zipped file on your PC (an example from MS Windows is shown below):

      1. Right click an empty space on your desktop or documents area; choose New > Compressed (zipped) folder.


      1. Give your zipped folder a name.
      2. To move multiple files in to this folder simply drag and drop or copy and paste your desired files into your new zipped folder.
      3. Upload your file in the same way as Step 1. of this guide.
      4. Once uploaded you will most likely want to access the individual files again and to do this you will need to unzip the contents. Click on the Unzip icon.

6. On the next screen click on Decompress
. Your files will be extracted and added as a folder in your files area. Documents can now be accessed individually.

Tip: If you no longer need the zip archive then It is good practice to delete it. To do this go to the files area and click on the Delete icon associated with the zip folder.

Step 3: Organising files into folders

  1. To create a folder, type in the title of the folder you would like to create in the text box and click on the CREATE FOLDER button. The folder will appear in your list of folders and files.
  2. To move files into the folder, select the file icon (not the file name) left mouse click and hold then drag the file over the folder icon.
  3. If required, you can edit or delete files on the right hand side of your screen.
