Security/Safety of Attachments

Question asked by Aimee Garten on Feb 27, 2019
Latest reply on Mar 1, 2019 by Aimee Garten

I have an adjunct colleague who is very concerned about "viruses, malware, worms, etc." when opening attachments from students in Canvas (including student work attached to discussions and student work attached to quizzes). This colleague has shared the concern with students about opening any attachments in class. 


What can I share with this colleague to make them comfortable with attachments in Canvas? Their fear and avoidance of attachments is problematic with our curriculum. Am I missing some glaring security issue that is not addressed in this LMS?


Thanks in advance.
