Uploading to Taskstream Instructions
All Linfield students must submit exemplars and supporting work for any course taken for LC credit (see catalog pages 6-8), whether taken at Linfield or another institution. Note that students need not go through this process if they only wish to earn transfer credit for a course, but not apply that course to their Linfield Curriculum requirements. Detailed instructions are provided below, but it is important to note that the system itself is relatively self-explanatory.
How to upload to Taskstream:
- Go to www.linfield.edu/taskstream.
- Enter your Catnet ID and password. This will take you to the Taskstream website.
- Select “Linfield Curriculum.”
- Select the LC for which you are submitting exemplars from the menu on the left side of the screen.
- Click on “Exemplar(s) and Supporting Work.”
- Click on the type of attachment you will be uploading at the bottom of the window. Most of the time this will simply be “Attachments” but it may be “Text & Image,” “Slideshow,” “Videos,” or “Links.”
Note: Each file attachment is limited to 50 MBs. Videos can be up to 500 MBs. For slideshows, each slide must be limited to 2 MBs, and images greater than 512K in size are automatically compressed. If the images cannot be successfully compressed to less than 512K in size, students will not able to upload the image without first optimizing it using a digital graphics program. Finally, each student is limited to a maximum of 2 GBs for all LCs in total.
