Step 5: Download the Files Required for Completing the Assignment

A window similar to the one below opens. Click Download Files.


The following window opens with support files that are required for you to complete the assignment. You have an option to download all files at once as a zip file by clicking Download all files or separately as individual files by clicking the green arrow.

Download the file (or files) to your computer by following the Windows prompts. These files will be saved in your default downloads folder set for your browser.


After successful downloading, your files should be located in the relevant folder similar to the one below.
Note: This is only an example. Your file names will vary according to the assignment you are working on.


A Microsoft Word document containing the instructions will be provided with these downloaded sets of files. Open the instructions document and work on your assignment as explained in the document. Upon completing the assignment, pay attention and save your work to the desktop, or to any other location that will be easy for you to remember and retrieve during submission for grading.

Important: When saving the file, remember to save the file with the same default file name. Do not rename the file when you save it. For example, in the illustration above, the default name of the file the student needs to work on is “GO_p01_Grader_IR.pptx.” After completing the assignment, the student needs to remember to save the file under the same name, “GO_p01_Grader_IR.pptx.” This same file with the default name needs to be submitted for grading. Students who change the default file name will have their submissions not graded or rejected.

Note: After downloading the files to your computer, you can work on the assignment at your own pace. You do not need not be connected to MyLabsPlus and can close all windows related to it.
