Uploading/Using a PDF in Axis LMS

Using a PDF in your courses is easy, and there are several ways to do it.

For this article, I will talk about the two most common ways.

Using your PDF as a Supporting Document
Often, you will have one or more PDFs for your users to reference or read that will help them complete the course materials, but the PDF document itself is not necessarily a required item they must read/complete.

For this scenario, you will simply insert the PDF as a reference item, as follows:
  1. Click LEARNING (tab)
  2. Click ONLINE COURSES (icon)
  3. Click MANAGE COURSES (icon)
  4. Click [Select Course]
  5. Click EDIT icon for page you want to put it on
  6. Click EDIT (pencil) next to SECTION you want to add it to (or ADD a section if needed)
  7. Click ADD CONTENT TO THIS SUBSECTION button (or add a Subsection first if needed)
  8. Click the RESOURCE icon
  9. Type in a caption
  10. Click the INSERT FROM FILE LIBRARY or INSERT FROM COMPUTER button to attach your PDF
Using your PDF as a Required Item
You may want to require your user to read the PDF as part of the course (and perhaps even require that they spend a certain amount of time reading it before they get completion credit for it).

For this scenario, you will have to wrap the PDF using the Web Object Module Type as follows:

Part 1 - Create the Web Object
  1. Click LEARNING (tab)
  2. Click ONLINE COURSES (icon)
  3. Click LEARNING OBJECTS (icon)
  4. Click NEW LEARNING OBJECT (icon)
  5. Click WEB OBJECT (icon)
  6. Click GOOGLE DOCS VIEWER (icon)
  7. Click the INSERT FROM FILE LIBRARY or INSERT FROM COMPUTER button to attach your PDF
  8.  
  9. Give it a Module Name, optionally assign time requirement, and SAVE
Part 2 - Insert it into the Course
  1. Click LEARNING (tab)
  2. Click ONLINE COURSES (icon)
  3. Click MANAGE COURSES (icon)
  4. Click [Select Course]
  5. Click EDIT icon for page you want to put it on
  6. Click EDIT (pencil) next to SECTION you want to add it to (or ADD a section if needed)
  7. Click ADD CONTENT TO THIS SUBSECTION button (or add a Subsection first if needed)
  8. Click the WEB OBJECT icon
  9. Click ADD button next to PDF you added in Part 1
