Use your locker to upload and store personal files. All files that are stored in your locker are confidential unless you chose to make them public. This tool is especially useful if you work on multiple workstations, as you can store and access information in a central and stable location. To access your locker, click the Locker link on your Course Home navigation bar.

Different file types can be stored in the locker, including word-processing documents, spreadsheets, zip files, and graphics. The different file types are represented by the graphic beside the file name.
