Why does a student's assignment show up in Turnitin but not in CANVAS/speed grader when submitting an assignment to a CANVAS assignment with submission type set to "External tool" -- Turnitin?   I am not using Turnitin to grade or comment on student work; I am using a rubric I made in CANVAS and commenting on papers in speed grader/ croc-a-doc. … (Show more)

I have added a few different courses to my classes from the commons. However, I cannot use the vast majority of the assignments because they are on Google Docs and I have to request access.    Is there a way around this? Or is there a way to contact the owner of the course?

I am new to Canvas and building my first course, but it seems to me that it would be useful to be able to organize Pages in Groups (as with Assignments) or Folders (as with Files). Again, it's my first time designing a course in Canvas, but it seems to me that the platform invites significant use of Pages (e.g., my syllabus offloads much of the… (Show more)

On the quiz page, my quizzes seem to be in a weird order—I don't know if it's by date or what, but I'd like to change it so that things are more organized and easier to find.   This annoys me so! Is there a way to alphabetize?

I’m having some trouble with the embedded Office 365 powerpoint presentations.   Students used to be able to view all the powerpoints but magically this week, students can’t see any of them.   I have created a new page and embedded the same presentation(s) in another class and those students are able to see it.    I have been able to see the… (Show more)

In a Canvas page, that is. This seems super-basic, but I can't find anything better than switching into HTML Editor mode.  Some insert menu would be OK, but I'm really hoping for a keyboard shortcut.  (macOS, if it makes a difference.)

So the file types allowed for my assignment are pdf and jpeg, so I converted my word document to a pdf. But Canvas still will not allow me to upload. It is a standard pdf, no annotations. How do I fix this?

Ever since Canvas moved over to DocViewer, the system randomly renders Word Documents, arbitrarily shifting the fonts, line-spacing, and other formatting. This makes the Speedgrader app completely incapable of use for assessing things like document formatting. If I have to download every file just to look at them on my computer, then why should I… (Show more)

I am trying to find the simplest way to copy a quiz so I can modify it for a small group of students. I've been searching through the help and have found how to copy/move questions (via the unfiled question banks); however, I want to know if I can actually copy one quiz (within the same course) and then modify and assign it?  Surely there is a… (Show more)
