SpacesEDU supports a wide variety of media types for you and your class.  Users can directly insert text, URLs or upload images, videos, audio files, Google Drive files, OneDrive files and more.  

This article outlines the different file types we support, as well as the limitations on file size text content in posts.

Users can upload a maximum of 10 media attachments per post, and 1 media attachment per message. There is no limit on the number of posts or messages a user can create or send. After uploading media, you can also change the order in which attachments are displayed by clicking the arrow buttons below each attachment.

Supported filetypes:


  • .jpg, jpeg 

  • .png

  • .gif (available on web only)

  • .HEIC
