give students access to an entire folder.

Jump to solution

I know this has been asked before, but I can't access the link in response to this question.  I have a folder created in files section of my canvas class.  It contains 42 videos and I don't want to create 42 links to different files.  How can I give students access to the entire folder?

Hello harmsm@wyomingcityschools.org‌, you have a couple ways to accomplish this.  Unless you have the "Files" button blocked from students, they have the same access to files as you do, so they may already be able to get there if you tell them where to look.  You also can go into the files, select the folder you want to share and then copy the link that is in the URL.  That link is unique to the folder so you can hyperlink that in a module or on a page for student to click.

Hope this helps!
