If you need to update a file that has already been uploaded into your course, you can take the following steps:

Navigate the either the link in your course of to the "Files" are of your Bb course to locate the file.  You can do this by scrolling down to the "Control Panel" in your course and clicking the double arrow link to the right of "Files"

On the next page, click the link for the file you want to modify and save the file with the same file name (exactly) as the one used in Bb.  Make your changes and upload the new file to your course by selecting "Upload" and "Upload Files."

On the next page, browse to the file you want to upload and be sure to select the overwrite option to preserve the links in your course to the file.  If the file name is different, a new link will have to be created in your course to download the updated file.

After clicking submit, you can see if you file upload was successful by looking for the green banner at the top of the page.  You can also check the edited date to see if today's date adn time are reflected.

Note, when you check your updated link, you may need to clear your browser's cache to see the updated version of the file.
