I tried adding folders in the Files area, but students can't see those folders and I don't see a way to make them visible to the students.
Instead of the students emailing their assignments to me directly, it would beneficial to have them upload them into specific folders setup in Canvas that I can view, download and manage. Something similar to Google Drive.
@nels6498 , there isn’t a way for students to submit files to the Files in your class. In Canvas students would submit their files to an “Assignment.” By submitting to the assignment you can then view them right in Canvas, add feedback, grade, and download them if desired.
Here are some guides that explain mire more about this:
Hope this helps!
I have the same question. I would like to find a way for students to submit more than one file. I know that many files can be uploaded at once, but that way they are not organized. I would like to view a folder with several files for one student at a time. I have a portfolio-type assignment that they completed over two semesters. Right now, it is not easy to see their reflections, artifacts, etc. without looking all over the place for them.
