How to make a file visible to just one student

Community Participant

I have an issue where I need to make a Zoom recording visible to just one student, who had an excused absence that day. I uploaded the zoom recording mp4 to files, but there is no way to link to it in an individual within canvas message, and it's too large a file to send with outside canvas email.

I don't want to put this in a module or announcement, as it will create confusion for the rest of the students who will then ask why I don't upload and post every single zoom recording for the whole semester.

Is there some way within canvas to make a particular file available to just one student, as needed?
