Canvas makes it easy to submit assignments on your Android device by linking them from third-party apps, 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.

Note: Before uploading an assignment to the Canvas Student app:

  • The assignment must already be uploaded to the third-party app.
  • The third-party app must be installed on your Android device.
  • To learn more about File Upload submissions in the Canvas Student app, view the Canvas Media Comparison PDF.
