How to Create and Upload Files
Generally, students will create all the files for their projects on Macs or PC's and upload the files to a course web server to publish them on the web. Web pages may be created using any web page editor.
Students upload their own files either by using standard file transfer software, such as Fetch or WinSCP, or by configuring a web editing application such as Dreamweaver.
What is SFTP?
SFTP (SSH file transfer protocol) is a way of securely exchanging files between your computer and other computers over the internet. SFTP allows you to download files from a remote computer to your local computer or upload files from your local computer to another remote computer. If the remote computer is a web server, moving files to the server is necessary to make your files available via a web browser such as Internet Explorer, Safari, or Firefox.
Despite the similarity in name and function, SFTP is a completely different protocol from FTP. To use SFTP for secure connections, the server you are connecting to must also support SFTP. The course web hosting environment and the streaming server both support SFTP.
How Do I Use SFTP?
In order to connect to any SFTP server for which you have an account, you need the following information, which should be supplied to you by the system administrator.
Instructions for transferring files to the course web server are available in these PDF's:
