Creating a Zip File
Webpages that contain graphics are dependent on other files from which the graphics are extracted. In order for a program such as Microsoft Word or Powerpoint to display these images in your webpage, the files (which usually reside in a companion folder) must be included in the same folder as the primary file.
To efficiently move all of these files into WebCT, you must first create a zip file. You could think of a zip file as a moving box for your computer files; it is a tool which conveniently keeps the necessary parts of a particular file system in one place, then allows you to move them to the new location together.
(Note: If you created your webpage in Word and it does not contain any graphics, you will not need to create a zip file. You can simply upload the primary webpage document as an individual file. If you created it in Powerpoint or added images in Word, you will need to zip the files.)
1. Start WinZip (PC), ZipIt (Mac), or another file compression application. If you do not already have on of these programs, you can usually download an evaluation version from the company's website (see http://www.winzip.com/ or http://www.stuffit.com/). (Note: The steps used in this tutorial are from WinZip, but the basic steps are similar in most file compression applications.)
2. Once you have launched WinZip, click on the Wizard button on the menu at the top of the window (if you do not see a menu, you are likely already in the Wizard). Click Next.
3. When asked what you would like to do, select Create a new Zip file; then click Next.
4. You will now be asked to give your zip file a name and identify where you would like to save it. Click on the Browse button to choose the location for your file and type the name in the File name box provided in this new window (do not type the file name in the box provided by the wizard). Then click OK and Next.
5. You will now need to identify the files and folders you want to include in your zip file. You should have at least one file (called index.html) and one folder (called index_files). Use the Add Files and Add Folders button to add these to the list.
6. Click on Zip Now.
7. You have now zipped your files. Click on the Next button to zip another set of files or Close to close the window.
