Learning sessions often include files such as handouts or worksheets that need to be sent to participants or posted for them to download. If your files were attached to the session details before the start of the session, participants could have downloaded the files from the login page. If the session has already begun and you need to transfer files to participants now, you can do so using the File Transfer window. I'll go to File > Transfer, and the window pops up.
In the File Transfer window, click the Share File button, navigate to the place on your computer where your files are stored, and select the file from the list. Then click Open. Participants see the File Transfer window on their screen. They can then click the file name in the list and the Download button will be available to them. They can click the Download button and save the file to their local machine. This is what it looks like on the Participant window.
There are some visible instructions at the lower portion of the window, but it's helpful to also tell participants what they need to do to complete the steps. It might not be obvious to them when they look at this window. The number in the lower-right portion of the screen tells you how many participants still have this window open. Once they're finished downloading, ask them to close the window and you can keep track of who has completed the steps as that number ticks down. File Transfer is useful whenever you want the participants to have access to a file that they'll use locally on their own machines.
When I close the File Transfer window, the file is emptied from this window. So if I need to use the window again, I'll need to share the file a second time.
