Understand content structure and settings
Files uploaded to your course are stored in the Manage Files folder, which can be accessed via Course Admin.
Review the settings for the content tool to customize the student experience.
File management in Brightspace
When you create and upload files into your modules and sub-modules, the file that appears in the module is a link that points to the content housed in the Manage Files folder of each course. If you delete a module or sub-module, you have the option of deleting all the content permanently OR deleting the module itself but keeping the folders in the Manage Files area.
When you're adding new files, be sure to use a unique file name, otherwise you may overwrite content in the Manage Files folder.
Content settings provide a little control over several visual aspects of your course, such as how content is arranged, which buttons appear, and if you can use HTML templates in your content.
