Documents you create for assignments can turn out quite large. In such cases, the usual channels like Toledo and square will not suffice to send those files. Here, We Transfer is the solution. If you want to send several documents at once, you should create a zip-file of the folder containing all your files.

Practical information

Generally, documents are submitted either via an assignment in Toledo or via an item in Square (only for distance learning). A movie clip you submit via Kaltura (possibly via YouTube). If you have exceeded the maximum upload limit-in Toledo is that default 250 MB, in square is that 450 MB-then you can first try to adapt your files to a smaller file size (e.g. by compressing images).

Should you end up with a file that exceeds that maximum size, you can use Belnet FileSender. How do you send a document?

  • Click on the black button 'Belnet FileSender'.
  • Then click on 'Log in'; from the settings list choose 'KU Leuven / Association KU Leuven' and log in with your VIVES account (r-number), your password in combination with MFA.
  • You can then forward a document from your computer.

You can also use WeTransfer, but there is an upload limit of 2 GB.

Help and training

If you want to send multiple files in one go, then it is clumsy to upload the files one by one as separate attachments in Toledo, square or a WeTransfer-mail. It is best to first bundle your files in a zip file and send that zip file in one go. Information can be found in this manual:
