How do I open the files that I purchased on EdHero?
EdHero supports a wide variety of files that you may purchase and download. If you’re unfamiliar with the type of file you’ve purchased, here’s a list of common files:
A ZIP file is a bundle of files (or a single file) that is “zipped” (compressed) to make storage, downloading, and emailing, easier.
Most modern operating systems (Windows XP+, Mac OSX) can open ZIP files natively. To open a ZIP file, double-click on it. On a Mac, your unzipped file(s) will appear in the same folder as the original ZIP file. On a Windows computer, drag the unzipped file(s) to a new folder. Once you’ve put the files where you want them (extracted them to a new folder), you’ll be able to open and use them normally.
If your ZIP file doesn’t automatically open, we suggest using 7-Zip, which is a free app that will unzip files on a Windows computer.
A PDF file is a common document format. Some have fields you can edit (like a signature field), but many cannot be altered at all.
You can open PDF files using Adobe Acrobat Reader (for Mac, Windows, or Android).
Microsoft Office files
- PPT/PPTX files, or PowerPoint presentations, can be opened withMicrosoft PowerPoint.
- DOC/DOCX files, or Word documents, can be opened withMicrosoft Word.
- XLS/XLSX files, or Excel spreadsheets, can be opened withMicrosoft Excel.
How does the rating system work?
We have a team of highly qualified teachers who regularly rate resources on the platform based on six five-star scales. Also, after a member has purchased an item or downloaded the item, they have an opportunity to leave a review and rate the resource. From these individual scores, a composite score is calculated based on each member’s rating and applied to the resource as its overall rating.
If you have a complaint about a resource you’ve purchased, you may want to reach out to the shop that created that resource for help resolving the issue before leaving a negative rating.
If there’s something wrong with a resource you’ve bought on EdHero, like incorrect or missing content, try reaching out to them via chat message.
If you haven’t received a reply from the shopkeeper or are experiencing website issues, like trouble downloading content us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include the shop and resource names in the support form
If you’re still not finding the help you need on the EdHero Help site, please contact support.
We’ll be happy to help solve any issue you might be having on EdHero. We might even be able to add articles that address your issue, so in the future, others will be able to find the help they need, too.
