A student was unable to submit an assignment direct to Canvas and emailed it to me (Word Doc). How can an instructor submit it to the Canvas site for the student?
Hello Frank Hatstat Welcome to the worldwide Canvas Community. We're happy to have you here, and thanks for the question.....which, alas, is a relatively frequent one. There is currently no way to do this in Canvas, though it is still out there as a Feature Idea that is on the Product Radar and one that can still be voted up and commented upon here: Submit an assignment on behalf of a student . The only other alternative at the moment is to have the student re-submit it in Canvas (assuming you have not set an "Until" date).
Not the answer you want to hear, I imagine, but I hope it helps a bit.
I don't believe there is away for the instructor to submit an assignment for a student. Did the student contact the Canvas help desk to have them assist them with submitting the assignment?
I am also going to share this ticket with the Canvas Admins & Instructional Designers groups to see if anyone in there has any suggestions for you and how they may have handled this type of issue in the past.
Thanks for your follow up, Brian. I appreciate your efforts.
Thanks for your reply and guidance. I tried to reply in the forum but see that was not designed into it to reply.
