Uploading Files - Size/Storage Limitations

Students may have trouble submitting multimedia files to instructors if the file size gets large.

File size limits are listed below (in order, from smallest to largest file size). (UMD limits are as of January 2008).

A number of free computer applications can compress (zip or stuff) data files to make the file size smaller. Most instructors should be able to open such files without any problems.
