What do I do to provide a place for students to upload a paper
Janet, Welcome to the Canvas Community. You’d want to create an online assignment and allow for file submissions. The following guide explains how to set this up - How do I create an online assignment?
Hope this helps!
Hi Janet. Are you looking for a location that students can upload papers to a journal that they continue to work on throughout a class or more of a one time journal submission? If you would like students to participate in a journal throughout the class, you might consider referencing this page, Using Groups to Allow for Journaling and Blogging. This page describes how to use student groups and discussion questions to create an individual location for students to journal. You can allow students to attach files to discussion questions which is described here, How do I allow students to attach files to a course discussion?
If you just would like students to be able to submit a journal or journal entry that they have written, you could do this as an assignment as described on this page, How do I create an assignment? In assignment you can allow students to attach a file for their submission.
I'm not sure if this helps, but if you describe a bit more about how you have the journals set up and what you hope to see in the end, there are probably a number of folks here with ideas. The topic of journaling has been discussed quite a bit.
