As an instructor, Files allows you to store, upload, and manage your own created documents, images, slidesshows, etc.within Canvas. You can upload one or multiple files, view all details about your files, preview files, publish and unpublish files, set usage rights, and restrict access to files.
You can add a file to your course by uploading directly to a Module or within an assignment. You can also import files using the course import tool in Course Settings.
As an instructor, you can drag and drop files from your personal files into course files.
You can move and organize the files in your course by dragging and dropping files or using the Move options for each file. Files are always organized in alphabetical order, so you are not able to rearrange the organizational structure of files, but to locate a file you can always sort files by column. Files can be added to Modules and Content Pages, making it easier for students to find a file.
