What is the difference between “View” and “Download”?

The “View” option enables you to access your digital resources online. The “Download” option enables you to download your digital resources to your device and to access both online and offline. We recommend using the download option in case you experience issues with your internet connection. The view/download options will be available depending on the type of content. If you have access to any resource packs/resource centres, you may have other options like ‘Play’. This option will allow you to play audio and/or video content. Audio or video can be downloaded if the ‘Download’ option is available. Other content like pdfs, word documents, excel documents, images, PowerPoint documents, and zip files can be downloaded or opened immediately (this will depend on your browser).
