Content Delivery 

What is content delivery?

Content delivery refers to the different ways instructors can deliver files and media to students in order to enhance students' eLearning experience. Content may be downloaded or viewed online and may be private or publicly accessible.

How to use content delivery

To deliver content, instructors can use a large variety of tools including OWL, public webpages, blogs, social media tools, virtual classrooms and content sharing programs. All types of files may be shared using these tools. Some of the most popular file types include: doc, pdf, jpeg, png, gif, mp4, mp3, and html. Instructors should always try to use universal file types that are accessible by all students (For example: Text documents: .pdf, .txt, Image files: .jpeg, Video files: .mp4, Audio files: .mp3, Web pages: .html). Instructors can choose tools that suits their course goals and structure. Instructors can decide whether to have the content secured by a login (ie. OWL) or freely available.
