The file storage limit in Canvas in 750mb. If you want more storage you can request this through the Help button inside Canvas and it can be increased to 1GB. However, if you want to upload numerous, large audio/video files into Canvas you will very quickly reach your storage limit and this will not be sustainable in the long term and may impact the system performance. Therefore, we would recommend that you use MS Stream for uploading large video files or Mediasite for large video or audio files, essentially ‘hosting’ them outside of Canvas. You can then easily take a ‘link’ to these recordings and embed the videos into a Canvas page for your students to view. (MS Stream and Mediasite are services supported by Queens.)
