How do I submit an online assignment in a course using Assignment Enhancements?

You can submit online assignments in Canvas courses that have enabled Assignment Enhancements. Instructors can choose what kind of online submissions they want you to use. This lesson shows how to turn in a standard online assignment in a course using Assignment Enhancements. If your instructor allows, you may also have the option to resubmit assignments.

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.

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

Notes:

  • If the assignment you are accessing displays differently, Assignment Enhancements may not be enabled in your course or your instructor may not have used a supported assignment type. Please view this guide for more information.
  • Assignment Enhancements does not support the following assignment types: No Submission, Group Assignments, Peer Reviews, and Cloud Assignments.
  • Not all file types may be available for your assignment, depending on the assignment submission type set by your instructor.
  • For instruction on completing an assignment, view the assignment details or contact your instructor for assistance.
  • Canvas does not support file uploads larger than 5 GB.
