A high engagement level in an online course is a great metric to measure success. One of the key factors in doing this is by providing additional learning material that learners can use to enhance their understanding of the subject material.
For that, Knorish's course builder allows you to add PDFs to the course which can be read-only and should you wish you can add files as downloadable content as well.

Once done, simply click on the PDF tab, and click Add PDF File. Once you do that, in the screen that opens next, select the file that you would like to upload.
Once the content is uploaded, you would see the file name listed. To view the added file, simply click on 'Open Document'.

Adding Downloadable Files
Downloadable files are created in an online course as additional reading material that learners can use beyond the online course at their convenience. The process of uploading the files is the same as listed above however the difference would be in how the files are viewed while the course is being viewed.
