Restricting file downloads

Is there a way to restrict file downloads such that the file is only viewable in a module and that students are not prompted/allowed to download to their local machine? All I can find is How do I restrict files and folders to students in Canvas? and that is not quite what we are looking to do.

Thank you,

If you are a Google Drive user you can do this in Drive and then use those links to populate module URLs items or use them wherever you'd like in Canvas.

See "Prevent your file from being downloaded, printed, or copied"
