A: You can upload most types of files, including Smart notebook files, Office files, music, videos, etc.  Do NOT upload files with student information as the files are stored off-site.  You CAN upload photos, videos of students as long as it fits within the FOIPP guidelines that the student has signed for your school.  This is an internal web site (for FOIPP purposes).
