  • You can start discussions with a group in Canvas.

    Manual Student guide
  • Your instructors may want to create groups within a course but still allow you to form your own group. Joining students groups are easy in Canvas.

  • If one of your courses includes a long or confusing name, you can create a nickname for your course to help you organize your Dashboard. Most courses are created using Student Information Systems (SIS) that generate course names based on terms, departments, and section numbers, and courses with similar names may be hard to distinguish.

    Course nicknames appear in the Dashboard, Course Navigation Menu, course breadcrumbs, and notification emails.

    A course nickname does not affect the course name at the account or course level; it only changes the name of the course for the individual user who created the nickname.

    If you need to know the original name of the course, you can hover over the nickname and the original name will appear. You can also restore the original name completely by deleting the nickname. Additionally, the course code is not affected and always displays on the course card for course reference.

    Note: This feature does not currently apply to the global Grades page and Dashboard sidebar elements such as the To Do list.

  • The Global Navigation Menu is located on the left side of every page in Canvas. Global Navigation links provide quick access to frequently used Canvas features. These links provide access to all your courses collectively. Default links include the Dashboard, Courses, Groups, Calendar, Inbox, User Account, and the Help menu.

    Depending on your institution account settings, other links may appear in the Global Navigation Menu.

    Manual Student guide
  • The Dashboard is the first thing you will see when you log into Canvas. The Dashboard helps you see what is happening in all your current courses.

    You can return to your User Dashboard at any time by clicking the Dashboard link in Global Navigation.

    Manual Student guide
  • You can embed an image file directly into discussion replies using the image icon. Images can be embedded from the web, your Canvas user files, or Flickr. If a change is made to the source of your image after you have embedded it in a discussion reply, the image added to your discussion reply will not be changed.

    Note: Before you can embed an image from Canvas, the image must first be uploaded to your user files.

    Manual Student guide
  • You can add media to your assignment, either as part of a text entry, or as your entire submission.

    Any attachments added as part of a graded assignment submission are also copied to your user files but are not counted against your user quota. However, once the file has been uploaded as a submission, you cannot delete the file. Files are stored in the Submissions folder.

    To learn more about available options for using media files in Canvas, view the Canvas Media Comparison PDF.

    Notes:

    • Canvas will not accept media uploads larger than 500 MB.
    • Your instructor will decide what type of submissions are allowed. One or both of these options may not be available.
    Manual Student guide
  • Your instructor may require you to submit a peer review of another student's assignment. To complete the assignment, you must review the student's assignment and add a comment in the comment sidebar.

    If your instructor includes a rubric, which is a pre-determined outline of how an assignment is graded, you must also assign a grade using the rubric.

    Some peer reviews may also be anonymous, which means you cannot view the name of the student whose assignment you are reviewing. Additionally, the student cannot see your name as the reviewer when you leave a comment to complete the review.  

    Manual Student guide
  • You can see comments from your instructor in the Grades page. Most comments are located in the assignment sidebar. However, your instructor may also leave comments in your assignment submission as annotations.

    Manual Student guide
  • You can submit online Assignments in Canvas using several submission types. Instructors can choose what kind of online submissions they want you to use. You may also have the option to resubmit assignments if your instructor allows.

    Any attachments added as part of a graded assignment submission are also copied to your user files but are not counted against your user quota. However, once the file has been uploaded as a submission, you cannot delete the file. Files are stored in the Submissions folder.

    Before submitting an assignment, you may want to review all assignment information, such as the assignment rubric, if any.

    This lesson shows how to turn in a standard online assignment. Learn how to submit a Turnitin assignment or a peer review assignment.

    Third-Party File Application Submissions

    You can submit assignments from Google Drive, Dropbox, or another third-party service via your desktop computer in one of two ways:

    1. Download the file to your computer and submit as a File Upload
    2. Share the file, copy the file URL, and submit as a Website URL

    Mobile Submissions

    You can also submit assignments using your Android or iOS device.

    Notes:

    • Not all file types may be available for your assignment, depending on the assignment submission type set by your instructor.
    • Not all of your assignments may be submitted online. If you cannot see the Submit Assignment link, your instructor may want you to submit your assignment in a different way or the availability date has passed. View the description of the assignment for instructions, or contact your instructor for assistance.
