You can add all the attachments in the world on this page - They would NOT need to be uploaded to your DOCS folder.
The FILE CABINET page is highly recommended for lots of handouts / docs that you want to share. Notice that you can create FOLDERS as well and move them to this location.
You could have one file cabinet per class if you want.
