I'm pretty sure finding my assignments should be very simple. Yet, this is my second day playing around on canvas, and I really can't get anywhere I need to. Any help would be great.
Hello Hope Ripberger...
You've posted your question here in the global Canvas Community website where people from around the world come to ask questions about the Canvas LMS (Learning Management System). The majority of people here won't have access to your school's Canvas environment. That being said, I can give you some general thoughts on what might be happening.
First, it is possible that your instructor for your course has hidden the "Assignments" button from course navigation. If this is the case, your instructor may want you to access all course material (including any assignments) from your "Modules" button in your course. The "Modules" screen allows an instructor to organize the content (assignments, content pages, quizzes, discussion topics, etc.) that follows a specific layout and direction as you progress through the course.
Second, it's also possible that your instructor hasn't yet made the assignments available to you yet. The assignments may not yet be in a "Published" state so that you and your classmates can access them. Or, your instructor may have set some prerequisites or requirements on content in your course that is currently preventing you from accessing the assignments until you complete some other things first.
So, there may be a few possibilities to consider. I would suggest that you reach out to your instructor, however, to confirm if you should or should not be seeing assignments in the course. I hope this information is helpful to you. Good luck, Hope!
