What are Files in Canvas?


What It Is:

Storage of files within your Canvas course.

Why It's Awesome:

  • Easy to build: files uploaded to the Files space in your course can be easily shared in any content you create. Files can be uploaded in batches. 
  • Easy to share: files space can be hidden or available to students; individual files or folders within the space can be restricted from student view.

Ways to Make It More Awesome:

  • Folder structure is flexible and allows for subfolder structure for easy organization.
  • Files become a part of your course when it is copied from one term to the next.
