Uploading Your Computer Files

Click play on the following audio player to listen along as you read this section.

First, read through these instructions. Then, answer the Check Your Understanding questions in the course pack. Finally, try out the steps yourself.

Remember that folder you made on the computer? Now it’s time to use it. A folder is just a place that holds files. Each picture, document, or recording on your computer is a file. The next step is to create the computer files that will go into your digital story.

Collect, make, and find the images from the list you made earlier. You might bring the images from home, take them with a digital camera, or find them on the Internet.
