Migration Cannot Exceed 500MB


I am trying to import a high school engineering course to my canvas and kept running into the problem in the photo below (Bottom photo - 'Migration cannot exceed 500MB'). This may be because I wasn't using my district canvas but, after getting into the correct version of canvas, now it just keeps giving me a loading bar when I try to import the course package (Top photo). Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?  

Thank you.

Hi Brandon,

This might be caused by you course quota being set to just 500MB. If you're a Canvas Admin you can use this canvas documentation (How do I set storage quotas for an account? ) to change the course storage quota. If not you will need to get with you local Canvas Admin to have them make the adjustment. 

Hopefully this is your issue and this helps you get it corrected.
