  • Canvas supports a variety of document types that can be converted in Canvas.

    Canvas supports previews for documents up to 500 MB and 999 pages.

  • If one of your courses includes a long or confusing name, you can create a nickname for your course to help you organize your Dashboard. Most courses are created using Student Information Systems (SIS) that generate course names based on terms, departments, and section numbers, and courses with similar names may be hard to distinguish.

    Course nicknames appear in the Dashboard, Course Navigation Menu, course breadcrumbs, and notification emails.

    A course nickname does not affect the course name at the account or course level; it only changes the name of the course for the individual user who created the nickname.

    If users need to know the original name of the course, they can hover over the nickname and the original name will appear. Users can also restore the original name completely by deleting the nickname. Additionally, the course code is not affected and always displays on the course card for course reference.

    Note: This feature does not currently apply to the global Grades page and Dashboard sidebar elements such as the To Do list.

  • There are many places where you can find Apps to use in your courses. You can add external apps in the Canvas App Center, the Edu App Center, or through vendor-provided tools.

    Once configured, external apps can be added to Modules, Course Navigation, the Rich Content Editor, and Assignments.

  • Modules are used to organize course content by weeks, units, or whatever organizational structure works for your course. With modules, you are essentially creating a one-directional linear flow of what you would like your students to do. Once you create modules, you can add content items, set prerequisites, and add requirements.

  • Users can edit permissions for files, including setting the state of the file (published or unpublished), make files available to students who have the link, or schedule availability dates for the files.

    When the link restriction is set (only available to students with the link), the file can only be viewed if they are given the link to the file. However, this option only allows files to be hidden from students in Course Files. This functionality is not valid outside of the Files feature. For instance, if a file with a link restriction is added to a Module or Assignment, the file can always be viewed by students.  

    When the student availability date restriction is set, students can view the name and information for the file. In addition to Course Files, files with an availability date restriction can be viewed anywhere in Canvas (such as when the file is added to Modules or Assignments), but the file will be locked and they cannot view the actual file until the specified date.

    Note: You can also restrict a file or folder as part of setting usage rights for files or setting usage rights for folders.

  • You can add a file to your course by uploading a file. 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.

    Note: Video and audio uploads to Canvas through the media tool can be up to 500 MB in size.
