File Upload and Multiple Dropdown Questions
The Canvas by Instructure app natively supports File Upload and Multiple Dropdown quiz questions.
Please note that the most recent version of the iOS app, 3.18.5, now requires iOS 10. Canvas applications support the last two iOS versions, and the app is preparing to support the release of iOS 11 in the next few weeks.
The release for iOS 3.18.6 is what we call a patch set, which is just bug fixes or other non-feature adjustments. All releases since 3.18 have been patch sets and don't include release notes. This specific update includes support for iOS 11. Any notable changes to the app will be identified by release notes in an upcoming release.
Today a new update was released to this updated, which included it being rebranded as Canvas Student.
