How do I import assignments from Canvas?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I import assignments from Canvas?

If you have connected your Canvas account, you can import assignments directly from Canvas.

To import assignments from Canvas, the Assignment Importer integration must be configured for your institution's network. If you are unable to import assignments from Canvas, verify you have connected your Canvas account. If your Canvas account is connected, but you are still not able to import your Canvas items, reach out to your network admin. To get the Assignment Importer integration configured, the network admin needs to contact Canvas Student ePortfolios Support.
