How are my migrated files organized in the Canvas Files tool?

When you migrate content from Oncourse to Canvas, your files and folders (including files stored in other sites that are referenced as attachments and/or links or embedded objects in the WYSIWYG editor) are copied to the Files tool in Canvas. A separate folder is created for each Oncourse tool that contains or refers to files stored in Oncourse Resources. Depending on which tools you chose to migrate, you may see one or more of the following folders in the Canvas Files tool:

Folder name Folder contents
assignments
Files associated with content migrated from the Oncourse Assignments tool
forums
Files associated with content migrated from the Oncourse Forums tool
lessons
Files associated with content migrated from the Oncourse Lessons tool
Modules
Files associated with content migrated from the Oncourse Modules tool
quizzes
Files associated with content migrated from the Oncourse Tests & Surveys tool
resources
Files and folders stored in the Resources tool of the migrated site
