If I create a PDF document will it contain only one lab or multiple labs?
You can create a PDF document that contains only one lab by selecting a single lab in the lab section of the main window of PC Courseware Editor Tool and then pressing the “Export as PDF” button. This is useful when you are uploading a single lab onto the courseware website.

You can create a PDF document that contains multiple labs by selecting multiple labs in the lab section of the main page (using the keyboard “CTRL” button) and then pressing the “Export as PDF” button. This is useful if you are uploading multiple labs or a package (.xpkg file) onto the courseware website.

The Labs that I exported using the PC Courseware Editor Tool have multiple items, for example my exported lab has an .xlab file and a folder. How do I submit multiple files?
You will have to combine the individual file(s) and folder(s) into a zip file before uploading them onto the courseware website. In general you want to make sure your submission contains:

PDF version of the labs can be uploaded separately.

What if I do not have PDF version of labs I intend to upload?
