You can upload media files from your Android device as an assignment submission in the Student app. Once you submit your assignment, you can verify your assignment submission. You can also resubmit assignments if your instructor allows.

You can also submit an assignment from a third-party app, such as Google Drive and Dropbox.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

Notes:

  • Your instructor may restrict certain assignment types, including file uploads, so this option may not be available for your assignment submission.
  • If your assignment includes a link to a PDF file, you can add annotations as part of your submission.
  • To learn more about File Upload and Media Recording submissions in the Canvas Student app, view the Canvas Media Comparison PDF.
