Files are where all of the documents that are uploaded into Canvas are located. You can add/link a file anywhere in Canvas, but the file will be based in the File tool.
Remember to include captions and source citations with the files you use. If they cannot be included with the specific files, include them in a Word document in the Files tool for your course.
Before uploading files to Canvas, rename any files that don't follow the file name recommendations found at the following link: https://help.suu.edu/article/243/file-name-recommendations
