About Locker

Use the Locker tool to upload and store files in Learning Environment. Locker enables you to upload files from your PC, or to create new HTML files.

Files in your personal locker are kept private, though your institution might provide the option for you to make files public.

Group locker areas allow you to collaborate on files with others.

Personal lockers

Your personal locker area is not course-specific. You can access the locker from anywhere in Learning Environment and store all of your files together.

Access the Locker tool

Click the Locker link on the navigation bar.

You can also access the Locker tool from the Classlist or Groups tool.

Group lockers

Group lockers are restricted locker areas where members of a group can share files. Any group member can modify files posted in group locker areas.

Group lockers have the same options as regular lockers with the following exceptions:

Access group lockers
