Migrate Classes*v2 Resources to Canvas Files

During the summer of 2017, we copied instructional materials from the most recently used Classes*v2 site for each unique course taught since fall 2008. As the instructor of record, you were enrolled in these course sites. You will find these courses in Canvas under All Courses, Past Enrollments and labelled with a term ending in "T" (e.g. Fall 2015 T).  

To request an additional course migration from Classes*v2 to Canvas, please complete the Course Content Migration Request form.

Please note that web links (URLs) are NOT supported in Canvas Files.  Web links will be converted to a page which contains the link to the website.

By default, each Canvas course site comes with 1 GB of file storage. If you need additional space, please email canvas@yale.edu and we are happy to assist you.
