You can import ZIP files to Canvas through Files or Course Settings.

Through Course Settings, you must upload the ZIP file to an existing folder in Files. You cannot create new folders through the Course Import Tool.

  • If you are using Usage Rights, you must set the file usage rights before the files can be published.
  • Canvas does not support file uploads larger than 5 GB.
