WebDAV for Windows 7

Windows 7 natively supports WebDAV, which allows you to work with your Resources and Worksite files in e-Learning much like any other folder on your computer.

See Creating a WebDAV connection on a Windows 7 machine.

Third-Party Software

If using Windows 7's WebDAV does not work, you will need to download a third party software. BitKinex is one example, and can be downloaded at: http://www.bitkinex.com/

Bitkinex Installion Tip

On installation, choose HTTP connection.

You should now be connected.
