    Hi, 

     

    At the moment when a student submits a file for an assignment there is no file upload progress displayed, instead students see the button 'Submitting...'

     

    Canvas LMS Assignment submitting

    If a student is submitting a media file that is quite large it would be very useful to the student to see a file upload progression bar. This will tell the student the file is being uploaded or if the upload has stalled.

     

    Something like this would be useful:

    Perhaps with numerical feedback indicating speed of upload / amount uploaded / amount remaining. 

     

    Thank you
