Files in Brillium refer to images, documents, multimedia files, and other common document formats that can be uploaded to Brillium and used within Brillium assessments.

Within the Brillium File Manager, folders can be added, and images, sounds, video, multimedia, and other common document formats can be uploaded to those folders.

The file types currently supported are images in the GIF, JPEG, or PNG format, Adobe Acrobat (PDF files), and Microsoft Office (DOC, XLS, PPT files).

Note

Brillium does not require files to be uploaded, or otherwise hosted within Brillium, to be used within Brillium assessments. Videos from YouTube and Vimeo can also be embedded via link. Brillium also supports Iframe embed for external objects.

Caution

Moving, renaming, or deleting any resources or folders breaks the link that exists between them and any assessment on which they appear. If you do perform one of these actions, and you still want the resource to appear, you will need to re-link the resource to the topic, question, or assessment it is used within.

Caution

To move a file or folder into another folder, a Brillium user must have the security privileges to do so. When folders and files are moved, they inherit the security rights of the destination folder.

Shared Resources Folder

The Shared Resources folder is a "public" folder. These files are intended to be shared between accounts within an organization, and this feature is especially useful when a Brillium user is designated as the manager of the file resources, so that other Brillium accounts can be restricted from uploading files.
