Beginning March 1, 2021, term, a per file upload limit of 100MB will be placed on ALL uploads to Illinois Compass. Students will retain a 1GB storage space with no limit being placed on an individual course.
Individual file uploads to the Illinois Compass environment by Instructors, Students, etc., will be limited to 100MB per file.

Instructors are encouraged to upload these files to their Box account and link to them directly, or use the Kaltura tool to store and display videos within Illinois Compass or embed code if stored on another system.

These storage and upload limits are regularly evaluated and are subject to change with minimal notice.
