Simpler file attachments in courses

Posted by Adrian Holovaty on November 27, 2019

Here’s an improvement for those of you creating Soundslice courses. We’ve changed file attachments so that they’re attached to courses instead of slices.

Previously, each slice in the slice manager had a “Manage file attachments” link next to it. This is where you could upload arbitrary files, such as PDFs, to make them available in any courses that slice was in.

But we found this was problematic — people assumed this was just a way to attach files to slices and didn’t realize they’d need to create a course as well. And some people creating courses would create “dummy slices” just for the purpose of adding file attachments to the course!

All in all, it was a confusing system. So here’s what we’ve changed:

We’re always keen to hear feedback from people creating courses, so please let us know what you think of the changes.
