Uploading Lesson Plans to TK20 (before your lesson observation)


Tips for students when uploading documents to TK20

  1. Make sure that there are no special characters in the name of your file that you are trying to upload into TK20 (e.g. no # – / , % ! or other characters other than numbers and letters).
  2. Upload a Word (.docx/.doc) or PDF document only
  3. Don’t use Safari — use Firefox (preferred) or Internet Explorer

If these do not address your issues uploading, please submit your issue to TUHelp — and include a copy of the document you are attempting to upload.

Also note: it is no longer possible to submit your binder without uploading at least 4 lesson plans. Thus, hitting the submit button has no effect at this point. However, you must choose SAVE DRAFT to save your work after you upload a file
