You can submit an assignment in Canvas using text entry. Text entry assignments are created in the Rich Content Editor. You may also have the option to resubmit assignments if your instructor allows.

Before submitting an assignment, you may want to review all assignment information, such as the assignment rubric, if any.

Notes:

  • 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.
  • You can also submit assignments using your Android or iOS device.
