How do I upload a student's assignment for him?
Hello Barbara Williamson...
Unfortunately, this capability isn't available in Canvas at this time. I did some searching around the Community website, and I found the following Feature Idea: Submit an assignment on behalf of a student. If this Feature Idea aligns with something you'd like to see in Canvas, I would encourage you to vote for it and maybe add a comment so that the Instructure staff knows why it would be important to you. I know this probably isn't the exact answer you were looking for, but I hope it has helped to answer your question. Thanks Barbara.
Hi Barbara Williamson
As Chris Hofer mentioned it is not currently possible to do that in Canvas. In our institutions previous LMS system it was possible to upload assignments for students and therefor that was one of the most commonly asked question from teachers when we implemented Canvas. What I've told them to do, and they seem fairly happy about, is to give that one students an extended due date: How do I assign an assignment to an individual student?
That would allow just that one student to hand in their assignment after the normal due date has passed.
Hope that helps,
