How do I download my syllabus, or any document?

Downloading a document in Brightspace is different, depending on whether the original document is a PDF or a Word Doc. There are instructions for downloading each type of document below. If you are not sure what type of document you are downloading, you can try both methods.


Downloading a PDF file (.pdf)

For a PDF, the download button is at the top of the document frame.



Downloading a Word document (.docx, .doc)

With a Word Doc, you go to the bottom of the document frame. First you must click View as Text.



This will give you a new toolbar, and now you have a download icon to click. Note: you can toggle between View as Text and View as Page.
