How do I allow my students to upload files into the files tab?
HI Quinn Hashimoto Welcome to the Canvas Community. There is no way to allow students to upload files to the course Files area. That is designed for instructors only insofar as adding something there. (Students can obviously view/download them, of course.)
You have a couple of alternatives for files that you want students to upload:
Overall, the best option is likely to do this via Discussions. While not quite as easy to scan through as the Files area, Discussions is the one area in Canvas where everyone in the class can see each other's contributions.
I hope this helps a bit, Quinn.
