How do I upload a file as an Assignment submission in Canvas?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
If your instructor allows file uploads as a submission type, you can upload a file from your computer as an assignment submission.
If your institution has enabled Google Docs as a submission type, you can also upload a file from Google Drive.
Note: By default, each user has 50 MB of storage space in Canvas. Personal files include profile pictures, uploaded assignment submissions, and other files uploaded to your personal Canvas file storage area. If you delete a file that you submitted as an assignment in your personal storage area, it will not delete the assignment submission in the course.
To upload a file from your computer, click the Choose File button . When the file window appears, locate and click the name of the file. At the bottom of the window, click the Choose or Browse button (depending on your browser).
To upload a file you already uploaded to Canvas, click the Click here to find a file... link . The file list will expand. Click the name of the file.
If you have access to upload a file from Google Drive, click the Google Doc tab .
