The My Files tab on your dashboard is home to any personal videos, images, screenplays or PDF documents you would like to upload to display on your Profile or share with fellow students or with your Instructor and Teacher Assistants.

Supported file formats currently include:
- Videos (MP4, h.264, and ,mov) - max file size 3 gb

All other file formats are currently unsupported. You can still upload and share unsupported files with your peers or instructors, but they will need to download and open them locally on their computers in order to review it.
