Illinois Compass 2g, How instructors can share files that students can see but not download
Instructors using Illinois Compass 2g can use the U of I Box.com service to share documents with students but prevent the downloading of the documents being shared. Instructors must upload the file to the U of I Box.com service, configure the sharing options, then copy and paste a link to the document in a Compass 2g page.
Navigate to your Compass course page and go to a Content Area. Select Build Content > Weblink. Give the Weblink a name and paste the link from UofI Box into the URL field, then click Submit.
Students that click on the Weblink will be brought to the page to view the document but will not be able to download it.
