How do I submit Assignments in the Canvas app on my iOS device?
There are five types of assignments you can submit on your mobile device. Once you submit your assignment, you can verify your assignment submission. You can also resubmit assignments if your instructor allows.
You can also submit an assignment from a third-party app, such as Google Drive and Dropbox.
The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.
- Your instructor may restrict certain assignment types, so not all types may be available for your assignment submission.
- If your assignment includes a link to a PDF file, you can add annotations as part of your submission.
- To learn more about available options for uploading or creating media files in the Canvas app, view the Canvas Media Comparison PDF.
