Upload a new file

Modified on Wed, 30 Nov 2022 at 05:28 PM

New evidence can, among others, be created by uploading one or more files from the computer to the portfolio. This can be any filetype, but not every file type can be displayed in the Canvas environment. This means that such a file type must be downloaded instead of viewing it via preview. Check this page for the list of file types that can be viewed directly in Canvas. There is a maximum file size of 500MB per file to upload, but it is strongly advised to compress media files before uploading them.

Uploading a new file

  1. Click '+ add evidence' in 'my evidence' or within a collection page (for detailed explanation on this, see Link to collection)
  2. Select 'file upload'
  3. Give your evidence a name (you can change this later)
  4. Choose one or more files to upload from your computer
  5. Click on 'add'

Security precautions

For security concerns, some file types are not allowed to be added to a portfolio. These types of files can present potential security issues.
