I've been sent a new version of a pdf to replace and existing one (it has a different file name). The original has been linked to by tonnes of other courses. It lives in a central course. How should I replace it so that the links from other courses don't break? Can I use the same url?
Have you considered experimenting and trying this on your own? If so, what have you discovered?
I did a test by making a small text file. I copied it, slightly changed the text in it and renamed it. I then replaced the original file with the second in the same resource. It looks like the url remains the same and the links in other course still work. Is this other peoples' experience?
