    Students are used to turning materials in on the "due" date. This promotes completing assignments ON the "due" date. My assignments are not "due" at a certain point. They "close" on the "deadline". Most assignments must be started before they close. And I put "deadline" in all my assignment instructions. But Canvas keeps saying "due" promoting the concept that that's when you "do" the assignment.

    Please, please please change this, or allow me the right to change it as an instructor.
