Is it possible to provide students a file they can view but not download?

Jump to solution

does anyone know of a way to prevent students from downloading files in Canvas? I have an example outline that I want them to see but not download (since they could use it in another class). Any help you can offer would be great.

vartouhi.asherian​ (btw, nice to see you again!), I have edited the title of your question, as it previously duplicated the body of the question itself. I've also added tags. This should make the question more prominent in search results for those seeking an answer to this or a similar question.

For something like an outline, you could take a screenshot of the outline and post that instead of the file. Then it would be a picture and text would not be selectable without some OCR software.
