How do I create a file link in a page in my course?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
As an instructor, you can add a course file to a page by using the Content Selector.
Open Course Files
Select Link Location
In the Rich Content Editor, place your cursor where you wish to insert your file.
Insert File Link
Save and Publish
If you are ready to publish your page, click the Save & Publish button . If you want to create a draft of your page, click the Save button .
Note: If you try to navigate away from a page without saving, you will generate a pop-up warning.
