When an instructor posts many files per week, is there a way as a student to download all of them without downloading them as individual files?
Hi Daniel Reed Welcome to the worldwide Canvas Community, and thank you for your question. The answer is "yes," IF your instructor has left the Files menu area available for student access. (Not all instructors do.) What you need to do is, in the Files area, select ALL the files you want to download by simply clicking in a white-colored area, or really any area that will not open the file. Actually, Ctrl-A (on a PC; Cmd-A on Mac) will work insofar as that will select ALL files.
Once they are all selected, click the arrow that is pointed to on the screen capture below:
That will then download the files for you as a .zip file, which you can then, of course, "unzip" on your own computer. You can find additional information on downloading course files, especially from a folder, here: How do I download a folder in ZIP format as a student?
I hope this helps, Daniel!
