Each file will have its own link on a page on LearnZone. When this link is selected, it will be downloaded as a copy on your computer, which can then be opened. Depending on what browser you are using, the files will be downloaded in a slightly different way.

Your teacher will set the criteria and this will affect whether or not you will have a green tick icon or a greyed out icon.
