What are Assignments?
Assignments include Quizzes, graded Discussions, and online submissions (i.e. files, images, text, URLs, etc.)
Where do Assignments appear in Canvas?
In the left navigation column of the course, you should see the Assignments link. When it is clicked, the Assignments page shows all of your course assignments, when they are due, and how many points each is worth.
Any Assignment created by your instructor in the Assignment page will automatically show up in the Grades, Calendar, and Syllabus features.
To access an assignment, click the name of the assignment.
How to Submit an Assignment
After you access an assignment, a lot of folks ask, "how do I complete the assignment?" The answer is not as complicated as some try to make it. Don't think I'll type my answer and then click the "Submit Assignment" link. Instead, you first click the "Submit Assignment" link and then simply follow the directions as presented.
