How to upload shared theme assets

I'm managing a sub-account that has custom icons to be used in each course. Where do I upload this icon set so they can be accessed by course builders without having to be uploaded to each course individually?

I'm coming to Canvas from D2L, which has sub-account-level folders where shared icon files are uploaded and paths copied for course implementation, but I can't find a file structure like that in Canvas.

If that's not possible, do you just put all your theme assets somewhere on the web so each asset has a URL?

Hi Robbie,

The University I'm working with doesn't want LMS theme assets to be stored on a separate server, so I wound up just using the Instructure font icons. I sized and styled them in our CSS stylesheet and they work fine. My only worry is that they'll be revised or the glyph codes will change at some point, so I hope we'd be notified if that were to happen!
