Student Help

This warning occurs when you are trying to upload a file to Moodle that is larger then the limit set by your teacher. For example, trying to upload some text as an assignment, contribute something to a forum or participate in any other interactive activity.

The file limit is displayed before you start to upload the file and is highlighted in the image on the right. Limits can be set anything between 10Kb and 250Mb. For example the size limit for Turnitin submissions is 20 MB if the Turnitin check has been enabled. If your file exceeds the limit you will not be able to upload until it is under the limit. You need to consider how it could be reduced. If you feel that the file limit is set to low for the requested activity then please contact your teaching staff.
