File name conventions:

*All files must have an extension, which tells the computer what language underlies the file. Examples of file extension names are .doc, .txt, and .html. Macintosh computers do not automatically put in the file extensions, so you must add them manually. PCs usually put in the file names.

*File names will not work if there are spaces or punctuation or even, sometimes, numbers. So name your file something like: jonesfinalexam.html

*The file extension must match the file type that you are saving. Most word-processors can save different types of files. There are 3 possible ways to save for posting into WebCT.

3. Upload your File(s) to WebCT 4. Submit your Assignment File(s)
