Synchronizes modules, assignments and files from a Canvas server to a local folder
CanvasSync helps students automatically synchronize modules, assignments & files located on their institutions Canvas web server to a mirrored folder on their local computer. It traverses the folder hierarchy in Canvas from the top course level down to individual items and creates a similar folder structure on the local computer.
First, CanvasSync creates a folder hierarchy on the local computer reflecting the ‘Modules’ section on the Canvas server. Files are stored in folders such as ../CanvasFolder/Course/Module/SubFolder/file.txt. Both regular files, links to external web pages as well as Canvas ‘Pages’ (HTML pages) representing assignments etc. may be downloaded. In addition, CanvasSync may download Canvas Assignments along with all linked files that can be found in the description of the assignment. Both files stored on Canvas as well as external files will be detected. Lastly, all files that do not fall into the above categories are downloaded and stored in the ‘Various Files’ folder.
