How do I bulk upload Assignment submissions in Canvas?

Bulk uploading assignments will allow you to upload assignment submissions to your course. You can upload the submissions through Grades or Assignments.

Note: Please make sure you have not changed the names of the submission files from your bulk download. If the file names are changed, please rename them to match how they appeared in the download. With different file names, Canvas will not be able to recognize the files that should be replaced.
