How do I add (link) Files, Assignments, Discussions or Quizzes to a Canvas Module?

You can add new or existing content items in Canvas to a module.

However, it is recommended that you upload files to the Files tool, create assignments in the Assignment tool, create discussions in the Discussion tool and/or create quizzes in the Quizzes tool BEFORE you link  any of these items to a Module

You can add an item to multiple modules, or multiple iterations of an item to one module.

When you add items to a Module, please be aware that the status of the Module overrides the state of the individual module items. For instance, if a file is published in the Files tool and is linked to the Module tool, the file will not be accessible to students unless the Module is PUBLISHED.
