I am experiencing a MAJOR problem, I am unable to create an assignment for my classes, my students are trying to submit assignments. Has the set up changed?
Hello Ms. Patience Douglas, are you following the steps in How do I create an assignment? If you are, and that is not working, can you please provide some more information as to what is happening instead?
Yes I am following the directions, and as of yesterday, I was creating assignments and the submit button was there. Today, I am trying to create assignments following the same process and I went back to be sure that I selected Save & Publish
Ms. Patience Douglas...
Out of curiosity, what web browser are you using? Canvas operates best using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome vs. Internet Explorer. Have you tried using one of these browsers to see if you get the same results?
Google Chrome, not really sure why I am experiencing issues, I can see the assignment submit button, however, my students could not, I went into each class and reviewed the settings to be sure nothing was haywire, and discovered that each of my classes has sections, which is unique in that they were not there before. I did not create sections for my classes. I was able to import content on all the classes once I created one assignment.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. I teach APUSH and US History 1877 to Present and I grade a LOT of essays!
Unfortunately, I'm not as familiar with course "sections" because our Technical College does not use "sections" in Canvas since all of our course numbers come over from our Banner SIS system. Is there someone in your Online Learning (or similar) department or in your local IT department who might be able to tell you if something has changed recently with your school's SIS that it somehow created "sections"? I'm trying to think of some ideas for you at your own school, and I'm not coming up with much more than that, unfortunately. :-(

Ms. Patience Douglas:
Is the issue that you can not create assignments or that students can not submit assignments?
If your students can see and access the assignments they are published and assigned to them. If your students do not see the blue "Submit Assignment" button then I would check the dates for the assignment. It's possible the "Available from" or "Until" date is causing the students to not have access to submit the assignment. Also I would check the "Submission Type" setting of the assignment. If this is set to "On Paper" or "No Submission" students will not see the "Submit Assignment" button. Beyond that, perhaps you could post a screenshot of the assignment details from the instructor view and one from student view. This will help us identify what may be causing the problem.
