Manage Files in Mahara

Mahara has a 'file bank' which allows you to pre-upload files, such as documents and images, to use on your pages.

2. Notice you can upload files by dragging and dropping into the box, or you can use the file picker by clicking 'Choose File'. It is important to note that you can, and should, create folders to keep your files well organised and be able to find things when adding them to pages.
