  • This lesson will show you how to log in to Canvas from an internet browser. If you are using Canvas with an institution, you will log in either from your institution's webpage or by using their direct Canvas URL. Canvas Network accounts also log in with a Canvas URL. You can also log in to Canvas on the Canvas Mobile apps.

    You must have an account to log in to Canvas:

    • If you are associated with an institution using Canvas and do not know your username and password, please contact your site administrator.
    • If you do not yet have an account, learn how to create a Canvas account.

     

    Note: If you are having trouble signing into Canvas, please see the troubleshooting section in this lesson.

  • User files include profile pictures, uploaded assignment submissions, and other files uploaded to your personal Canvas file storage area. By default, each user has 50 MB of storage space in Canvas. Administrators can change the quota for user files for the entire institution. No other users can view files in your user files.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
