Adding a PDF file to an Open edX course unit
Adding a PDF file to an Open edX course unit can be very useful when you need share more information than you wish to include in the unit. Here's how to do it.
As always, make sure the PDF XBlock is enabled for your course. Here's an article on Enabling XBlocks in Open edX.
The Advanced Modules code for the PDF XBlock is - wait for it - "pdf".
Next, we recommend that you upload your PDF to Files & Uploads in Studio. See our article on Adding files to your Open edX course for more information on using this page.
We would always recommend allowing learners to download the PDF, as this is helpful for users of assistive technologies, and many of your learners will appreciate being able to use their own PDF reading software!
