Some institutions do not want to allow users, students in particular, to download class-published content. The Download capability is enabled for all institutions by default, but can be disabled at the section level by an Instructor, or across the institution, organization, or department by an Administrator.
Once disabled, users cannot download content from the Class List page. Content owners can always download content they own.
To disable downloads of class-published content across the institution
Download functionality is now disabled for classes. This has no effect on content residing in the Library page.
NOTE: If disabled at the institution/organization/department level (and overrides are not allowed), instructors can still see the download toggle on the section Settings page, but it is dimmed, meaning they cannot change the setting.
