Using WebDAV in Laulima


Note: this information has been taken from the Laulima Help Center, which should be consulted for more information.

WebDAV allows you to transfer files and folders from your computer to a Resources folder in Laulima either your Workspace or a course). WebDAV stands for "Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning".

Once you have set up WebDAV, your computer will treat your Resources section like any other folder on your local system.

Important Note: Before you set up WebDAV, at least one object (i.e., file or folder) must be in the destination Resources tool. For instructions on adding files without using WebDAV, see Uploading Resources.

Step 1: Determining the Site ID

Each of your courses and your "My Workspace" have unique IDs that you must know if you are going to connect to them outside of the Laulima interface (such as if you are using WebDAV to download files).

Additionally, instructors can find the WebDAV ID using the Resources tool. In your site's menubar, click on the "Resources", and then click "Manage/Download Multiple Resources". You will see the WebDAV address on that page.

Step 2: Making the Connection

Steps to creating a WebDAV connection are available for the following operating systems:

If you want to create a WebDAV connection to your Laulima in Dreamweaver, you would create a new site, select WebDAV as the type of connection (similar to FTP), and then enter the WebDAV address and your UH username and password to create the connection. More information on using Dreamweaver in Laulima is also available.
