Display file upload progress bar for students uploading assignment submissions

Idea created by Jon Mason on Feb 27, 2019

    This is a re-creation of Paul Rettey's original idea: Display file upload progress bar for students uploading assignment submissions, which was archived. I believe this is an important UI/UX consideration. 


    From here on is the text/images copied directly from the original idea...

    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
