Canvas - How do I use files?

Organize documents, images and videos in your course files.



  • Students will only see files that you link and publish in modules, assignments, etc. They will not have access to the File tab in the navigation.
  • Course storage limits are 1000MB. Consider alternate options for storing large files such as videos in Kaltura (My Media) or Onedrive and then embedding or linking into your course. 
  • Student files submissions only count against the course quota if they are NOT submitted to a graded item. 

24/7/365 Canvas Support is available through the help icon in Canvas, by calling the phone support for faculty, staff and students or email us directly at
