On the course page, if the mentor enabled the file upload, you can click on upload. After that, you will be forwarded to our Dropbox upload page. From here you can upload files and folders. Make sure you upload files to the correct course and always add your name in the filename. The mentor will unlock all uploads for all students.

What is Discord?
For our course group chat we use the service called Discord. You can register for Discord here https://discord.com/ Discord is an application and can be downloaded for Windows/Mac or used in the browser. There are also mobile apps available. Each course has its own text and video channel. You need an invitation link to join the channels. This link is provided in the course approval link. Be careful, those links can only be used once. If your link is expired, please contact our stuff or your mentor. Here is an easy tutorial introduction video for Discord
