If you receive the quota error message, review the Content Collection for large files. Manage them as described below. Then, you MUST delete the files from the Content Collection.

The two most common types of files that are large and cause problems:

  • Video files (mp4, MOV, etc.)
  • Voiceover PPT files

How to Avoid Maxing Out: Videos and Voiceover PPTs

  • Videos for short term. Example: Zoom class session recordings
    • Record to the Zoom cloud, then share the link to the recording in your course
  • Videos to keep long term (not just one course or semester)
    • Upload the video file to Panopto or YouTube
    • Share the link to the recording in your course
  • Voiceover PPT files
    • Convert to a video file
    • Upload to Panopto or YouTube
    • Share the link to the recording in your course
  • Student uploads go toward the course maximum as well. Students should also upload large files such as videos to YouTube or OneDrive.
