For an assignment there isn't a way to open it for a specific student. If it was a quiz there is a way to unlock the quiz for a specific student via the Moderate Quiz settings, but Assignments and Discussions don't have that setting. For Assignments and Discussions what I recommend to faculty is to extend out the "until" date on the assignment and then notify the student who needs to submit it that its available. If you extend the until date it won't change the due date already set for the assignment so students won't automatically know that it has opened back up again. As soon as the student submits then close it back up.

Hope this helps and on the high side this feature/option may be coming with selective release - something that I know Instructure is working on.

 @klm0046 ​, it's been over a year since this question was posted, and my, how things have changed (which is not surprising, because after all, it's Canvas.) Yes, it's now possible to give a single student a different due date on an assignment. For more information, please refer to How do I assign an assignment to an individual student or course section?

Dang! Wish I'd though of that. I thought the "until" feature was visible to the students.

The reopen feature, still, would be great. It is one of the few things good about Etudes. But that's about it!

Is the re-open feature now available?
