  • You can start discussions with a group in Canvas.

    Manual Student guide
  • You can upload files to both user and group files. Files can be used for assignments, discussion replies, and conversation attachments. Additionally, files in your user or group files can always be embedded in Canvas using the Rich Content Editor.

    Learn how to locate your user files and group files.

    Notes:

    • For assignment submissions, you can upload a file from your computer or select a file that has been previously uploaded to your user files. If you select a previously uploaded file, you can delete the file after it has been submitted and free up extra storage in your user files.
    • If your group file requires you to set a usage right, you must specify the file information before the file can be published. If your group does not require usage rights, group files are automatically published.
    Manual Student guide
  • You may be able to create new discussions in your course.

    Note: If the Add Discussion button does not appear, your instructor has restricted this setting in your course. However, this setting does not affect discussions in course groups. Learn how to create a discussion in a group.

    Manual Student guide
  • Your instructor may include a rubric as part of a graded discussion. The rubric is a set of criteria that your instructor will use to grade your discussion. Before submitting your discussion, you can use the rubric to evaluate your own work and make sure your discussion fulfills your instructor's requirements.

    Note: Not all graded discussions may include a rubric.

    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 easily reply to any discussion, threaded or focused. However, the reply process varies depending on the type of discussion. Discussion replies can be edited or deleted, as long as your instructor has not restricted this setting in your course.

    Before submitting a reply for a graded discussion, you may want to review all discussion information, such as the graded discussion rubric, if any.

    Manual Student guide
  • If your instructor allows file attachments, you can attach a file to a discussion reply using the attachment icon. Attachments can be added to both graded and non-graded discussions.

    Any attachments added as part of discussions are copied to your user files. Attachments for graded discussions are not counted against your user quota and cannot be deleted.

    Notes

    • If the attachment icon does not display, this option is not available in your course.
    • If your attachment causes you to exceed your user file quota, the file may fail to attach to an ungraded discussion.
    • If you have permission to edit or delete discussion replies, editing a reply also allows you to remove an attachment.
    Manual Student guide
  • If your instructor allows file uploads as a submission type, you can upload a file from your computer as an assignment 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.

    If your institution has enabled Google Docs as a submission type, you can also upload a file from Google Drive.

    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.
