TIP: If you have a large course (more than 500 MB), think about using a separate space to store Powerpoints, photo galleries, instructional video, podcasts, etc. These separate spaces might be YouTube, Blendspace, Prezi or Emaze, Google Drive, publisher’s site, or other online program. Then you can embed links to these inside Canvas module pages.
