Files can house course files, assignments, syllabi, readings, or other documents, as well as profile pictures and user-specific files. Instructors can lock folders and files so they can only be viewed by direct links or only unlock on a specific date.
Files can be placed in Modules, Assignments, or Pages. Files and folders are put in alphabetical order and cannot be rearranged.
Canvas users will find access to files (documents, images, media, etc.) in three different places:
- Personal files
- Course files
- Group files
Each Canvas course has a file storage limit of 524 MB.
To see how much storage your course has left, click on Files and scroll to the bottom of the list.
Note: Audio and Video take up the most space, please us the Record/Upload Media button in the Rich Content Editor to bypass the course storage limit.
