What is the Files Tool?

Files are where you upload course files, syllabi, readings, or other documents. As an instructor, you can lock the folders so students cannot access your files. 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, located in each user's profile (students, teachers, and TAs)—
  • 212 - Files from Canvas LMS on Vimeo.

  • Course files, located in each course (students, teachers, and TAs unless files are locked by the teacher)—
