Unable to Upload Recordings or Other Large Files to Assignment

If you are unable to upload a recording or other large file to an assignment, be aware the file size limit for uploads to a dropbox is 250 MB. 


If that is not the problem, try the following:

  • Make sure you are using one of the Browsers Supported by D2L.
  • Save the file to a computer from a flash drive before uploading.
  • Your connection to the Internet may be poor.
  • Use a wired connection, rather than wireless.
  • Upload from a campus lab computer.
  • Zip the file to compress the size.
    This also hides the file type from D2L if the file type is not recognizable.
