Avendoo® online documentation


Media are images, Office documents, pdf files and all other file formats appropriate for the web browser. The media can be like all content multilingual. Before you can use media in your learning content, you have to upload it in Avendoo®.

You define the internal cache for media meta data in the system setting “system.file.cache.capacity”.

In the overview ( Learning content → Media) you see all already uploaded media. If you click the title, the corresponding media wizard opens and you can edit the title and can upload a new version of the file. Via clicking the symbol of the translation area you get into the translation management of the corresponding medium. Via clicking the national flag you can download the chosen medium.

There are the mass processing functions Copy, MoveDeleteChange owner and Export for media. More information about these functions you find under Media: Mass processing functions.

The following functions are available via the context menu of the corresponding medium title. In the context menu you find also the object permissions, which are used on user content.

To upload a new medium, choose Learning content → Media → Create. The Media wizard opens.
