Adding Resources to a Subject Area

Many disciplines and programs have additional resources such as study guides, useful links, work examples, or other digital content that can be shared online. The Learning Web provides a place for this type of content under Subject Areas as described in this module.


You will need both a Learning Web account and a manager account role for the Subject Area. See Requesting Access to Manage a Subject Area for more information.

Step by Step

  1. Log in to the Learning Web using your faculty login name and password.
  2. Navigate to your Subject Area. You should see the gray edit bar above the title, indicating that you are logged in to the site and have editing rights.
  3. Click on "Add item..." in the edit bar and choose a folder type from the drop down menu (if you plan to use the folder to contain a variety of resource types, choose Folder).
  4. Complete the edit form and save when you are finished.
  5. Returning to the main page of the Subject Area, you should see a link to your content under the "Additional Resources" heading.
  6. You can now use the new folder to create or upload your actual resources (Note: Refer back to the main Learning Web tutorial for more information about content types).
