Activities and Resources in Courses, Units & Modules

Files are often placed on LearnZone pages for you to access. These are usually files that are built-in Microsoft Office, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF. Occasionally, other file types may be uploaded to LearnZone, but they should behave in the same manner when being accessed or downloaded.

Each file will have its own link on a page on LearnZone. When this link is clicked, 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.

The activity completion icon will be greyed out indicating that you have not completed the resource or activity criteria.  The criteria can be anything from the following:

  • clicking on the resource or activity to view it
  • manually ticking it off
  • achieving a certain grade or score

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.
