What do you use for large quantities of large file submissions?

We have a few faculty who teach courses (media and communication arts for example) where students submit a number of large files for assignments. In this example, each week, each student is submitting approx. 100MB in files. To have students upload each of these to Canvas and have the instructor download each one for grading is not reasonable.


In cases like this, how do other institutions handle these file-intensive classes? Do you use a 3rd party system? Do you have some way of managing the process within Canvas, such as through LTI integration?
