Content Search on Canvas?

Jump to solution

Is there a way for me to search all Current Term Courses for a specific file types or content?  In other words, can I create a search for files with the extension .MPEG or .DOCX (or for files hyperlinked from a specific server)? 

Scenario:  We have a media server that is being decommissioned, we suspect that several courses have content hyperlinked to or uploaded from that site.  We want to identify which courses have this mapping (or content) so we can assist with establishing new linkage to the files.

Canvas doesn't have native search, but this Atomic Search plugin gives you exactly the search functionality you'd expect.  Search multiple classes or one class.  Students or teachers.  Search pages, files, assignments, syllabi, discussions, modules, and text-based Canvas urls.
