Taking tests can be stressful and taking online tests can be especially so, particularly when technical issues arise. The following guidelines will help you avoid the most common technical difficulties while taking online tests in UVACollab and ensure that your work is submitted successfully.
There are several reasons why you may not be able to locate a site, including any of the following (more details in the steps below):
- A site has not yet been created for a course.
- You've just enrolled in a course. If you enrolled in a course today in SIS, it will take an overnight update before that change will be available in UVaCollab.
- If you have access to many sites, you may need to find your site in My Sites, or access it via Home > Worksite Setup.
- If you have hidden a site, you may access it via Home > Worksite Setup.
- You were removed from a course roster in SIS.
- A course roster was removed from a site.
- A site owner or administrator has removed access to the site.
When creating folders and uploading files to UVACollab, folder and file names that contain special characters can affect site participants' ability to download or access the files correctly.
Issues can also arise from uploading files with very long names in excess of 250 characters, or from saving files inside many stacked folders so that the resulting file location is greater than 250 characters.
This article includes the following:
- Issues that arise from using special characters in file or folder names and recommendations for naming
- Issues that arise from having very long file and folder names
- Tips for making shorter file and folder names
Note: Some online journals post articles with their entire bibliographic entries in the file names; these names may contain special characters and be very long. If such a file is uploaded without editing its name, it can cause errors when uploading other files to the same folder.
Select the Site Email tool from the Tool Menu in your site.
To copy and paste text from a Google doc or another web page into the Rich-Text Editor, you should use the Paste as Plain Text button. Using this button will help remove HTML formatting from copied content.
You can upload and/or download resources using the WebDAV protocol. Once you have set up WebDAV for a particular site's Resources or File Drop, your computer will treat the Resources or File Drop folder like any other folder on your local system. You will be able to drag and drop files and folders from Resources or File Drop just as you would in My Computer in Windows, or the Finder on a Mac.
You can set up WebDAV connections using your computer's native WebDAV support or download the Cyberduck WebDAV client to use.
Depending on your computer configuration, you may find one method performs better than another.
Note: You may also upload multiple files using the drag-and-drop feature in Resources and File Drop.
