How do I bulk upload files to a course?

How do I bulk upload files to a course?

If you have a lot of files to add to your course, you can bulk upload them.

Notes:

  • You can also bulk upload files by dragging and dropping the files into Canvas from your computer. However, sometimes too many files can cause problems. If you have more than 50 files, try zipping the files and uploading the ZIP file into your course.
  • If you are using Usage Rights, you must set the file usage rights before the files can be published.
  • Canvas does not support file uploads larger than 5 GB.

Hi @derek94 and @errolenebartley,

Thanks for adding your comment to the Canvas guides! The Canvas Community is a global resource which holds how-to guides and forums to help users find answers to Canvas-related questions. However, these comments are not connected directly to Canvas. To access Canvas courses to submit assignments, respond to course discussions, etc. users need to access and log in to their school's Canvas instance. For more information about how to access Canvas, submit assignments, respond to discussions, etc., check out the Canvas Student Guide.

Best wishes,

Alli
