For my Math For Education II class, I must print out and keep a notebook for a grade. She has the entire notebook uploaded in the "Files" section of CANVAS. But, if the module is locked you may not view or print the file until the module has been unlocked. Sadly, there is no indication whether the file is locked or unlocked until you click every individual file one at a time. My idea is to ask CANVAS developers to recode the "Files" section to automatically hide files in the "File" section that are inside a locked module or at least have some kind of symbol or indication that the file is locked.
