Use the toolbar to attach different types of files to your item:
- Multimedia Content
- External Tools
While there is no limit to the number of files you can attach to materials in Schoology, you must upload each file individually. Schoology has a size limit of 512 MB per file.

*.flv, *.mp4, *.mp3, *.mov, *.m4v, *.m4a,

Drag and Drop File Upload: You can attach files directly to your materials using the drag and drop function. Drag a file from your computer or local network and drop it anywhere on the toolbar to add it as an attachment:
You can also click the File icon in the Attachments toolbar to browse your computer or local network for files.
Click the Link icon to enter a URL or embed code to attach a web page to your Materials.
Click the green arrow icon to automatically add the title of the web page, or type your own in the Title field.
Click the Resource icon to attach a link or file saved to your Schoology Personal or Group Resources, or to attach a file from your Schoology Resource Apps.
Attaching an Audio/Video Recording
Instructors in Enterprise accounts may also record an audio or video file to attach to their Materials.
To record an audio or video file:
- Click the Microphone icon, and then select:
- Audio to record an audio file.
- Audio/Video to record a video file. You must have a webcam to record a video file.
Note: The audio recorder does not begin until you click Record, and it detects sounds. Sometimes it takes a loud noise - for example, clapping your hands, or tapping the microphone - for the recording to detect the 'start' sound and begin recording.
Additionally, please make sure you have the latest version of your browser installed as well as the updated versions of our System Requirements.
Attaching an External Tool
Click the Ruler icon to attach an external tool to your Materials.
