How do I use Files as a student?

As a student, Files allows you to store files and assignments within Canvas. You can upload one or multiple files, view all details about your files, and preview files. Files is built with responsive design to adjust for browser scaling. The folder navigation window, file displays, and even file names adjust to the width of the browser window.

You may have access to files (documents, images, media, etc.) in three different feature areas:

  • User files, located in your user account
  • Course files, located in each course where you are enrolled (if your instructor allows you to view Course Files)
  • Group files, located in each group where you are a member
