  • If your institution has enabled Google Docs or Google Drive as a submission type, you can upload a file from Google Drive for an assignment. Unlike other assignment submissions, files from Google Drive are not uploaded into your Canvas user files.

    Canvas accepts Google Doc, Google Sheet, and Google Slide files. You can also upload any uploaded Word (.doc/.docx), Excel (.xls/.xlsx), PowerPoint (.ppt/.pptx), and PDF files not converted to Google Docs formatting.

    Notes:

    • If the Google Docs or Google Drive tab is not available in your submission, your institution has not enabled this feature.
    • If your course displays a link to your Google Drive in the Course Navigation Menu, your course has enabled Google Drive directly. Otherwise, you must enable Google Drive a web service in your user profile to upload Google Drive files.
    • In Google Drive assignments, you can only submit one file for your submission.
    • When Google Drive files (docs, sheets, and slides) are uploaded as a submission, the files convert to their Microsoft counterpart file types and appear in the submission as respective Word, Excel, or PowerPoint files. This conversion essentially preserves the submission in its current state; any changes made to the file in Google Drive will not be updated in the submission.

  • You can view all your course assignments on the Assignments page.

    Note: Your instructor may choose to hide the Assignments link in Course Navigation. If the Assignments link is not available, you can still access Assignments through other areas of Canvas.

  • You can submit Turnitin assignments directly in Canvas. Turnitin measures assignment originality and indicates what percent of your assignment matches internet sources.

    Submitting a Turnitin assignment is similar to submitting a regular online assignment. However, the Turnitin LTI for Canvas only supports file uploads and text entry submissions; in file uploads, you can only upload one file per assignment.

    Additionally, you may not be able to resubmit your assignment or submit the assignment past the due date. Be sure to view the assignment summary before submitting your assignment. If you are allowed to resubmit an assignment, all marks and comments associated with the original submission will be deleted. Turnitin resubmissions may take up to 24 hours to process.

    You can submit your assignment as a text entry or upload any supported file type: Text (.txt), Microsoft Word (.doc/.docx), Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt/.pptx), Postcript (.ps), Portable Document Format (.pdf), Rich Text Format (.rtf), HyperText Markup Language (.html), WordPerfect (.wp), Hangul (.hwp), or Open Office (.odt/.ods/.odp). You can also upload an assignment from Google Drive or Dropbox. Turnitin submissions require a minimum of 20 words, a maximum of 400 pages, and a file size maximum of 40 MB.

    After submitting your assignment, your instructor may allow you to view your Turnitin results. If your instructor has added a Canvas rubric to your Turnitin assignment, it can only be viewed on the Submission Details page for that assignment (at any time) or your Grades page (after the rubric has been scored). You can access the Submission Details page by clicking on the name of the assignment in your Grades page.

    Note: The Turnitin LTI is responsive to the size of your browser window. Your view of the Turnitin LTI may vary from the images shown in this lesson.

  • Turnitin provides an originality report and similarity index letting the instructor know how much of your assignment is original.

    Depending on the Turnitin settings, after you have submitted your assignment, you may be able to view Turnitin results immediately or after the due date.

    Your instructor also has the option to restrict the originality report from being shown in your assignment. If the originality report does not appear in the assignment submission details, your instructor has restricted this feature.

    Note: The originality report for an initial assignment submission may take a minimum of ten minutes to generate.

    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.

  • 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.

    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.
    Manual Student guide
  • If you do not already have a Canvas account, you need to create an account before you can log in to Canvas.

    If you are using Canvas through your institution, you will most likely already have an account and need to accept a course invitation. Your institution will email your login information. If you do not yet have an account, you can create an account when you accept the course invitation.

    If you are not using Canvas through your institution, you can create your own account. Your instructor will provide you with a join code to link you directly to the course. This code will be sent to you separately from the Canvas email that invites you to join the course. If you need to create an account in Canvas but have not received your join code via email, please contact your instructor or institution for help with logging in.

    Manual Student guide
  • Parents can sign up as an observer in Canvas. Observers can link their Canvas account to their student's account so they can see assignment dues dates, announcements, and other course content. Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.

    This lesson is for parents who do not have a Canvas account and want to observe their students in their courses.

    If you already have an account from your student's institution, log in to Canvas using the credentials given to you.

    Notes:

    • If the registration banner is not available in the login page, the institution has not enabled this feature. Please contact your student's institution for assistance. The registration banner is enabled through Canvas authentication.
    • To observe a student, you must know the student's Canvas username and password.
    • The student must be enrolled in the course and must accept the course invitation before you can sign up to observe the student. If you receive an invalid username or password message during the signup process and the student's credentials are correct, check with the student to verify that he or she has received and accepted the course invitation.
    • Once you have an account, you may be able to view student information through the Canvas Parent app. Access to the Canvas Parent app is controlled by the student's institution. If you already have an account from your student's institution as an observer, you can always view student information through the Canvas Parent app.
  • English is Canvas' language default, but you can choose to view the Canvas interface in another language.

    Note: Instructors have the option to change the language preference for their courses. If you view a course where the instructor has made this change (most often for a foreign language course), the course language will override the language in your user settings.
