Protect text and images from copy and paste- HELP this teacher please

Jump to solution

Hi! I've been reading here how to avoid students from copying and pasting Canvas text/content and images. I found this: https://www.codexworld.com/disable-mouse-right-click-cut-copy-paste-using-jquery/

But I'm not sure how to use it. I've tried it in the HTML editor of one of my Canvas pages. I've written the code at the top, but once I click save, it literally disappears and anyone can still copy and paste my work. 

I am not a programmer, but a simple teacher! What am I doing wrong? 🙂

Hi @analarenaavella,

The Canvas RCE strips out most scripts from being uploaded, to prevent potentially malicious code from being included in Canvas content (I assume).

I'm not sure that there is a way to set the Canvas content so that it can't be copied.  Even if you could block browser copy and paste with a script, there's nothing to prevent students from simply taking a screenshot of the browser window.
