How do I submit a media file as an assignment submission in the Student app on my Android device?

You can upload media files from your iOS device as an assignment submission in the Student app. 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.

Notes:

  • Your instructor may restrict certain assignment types, including media file uploads, so this option may not be available for your assignment submission.
  • To learn more about File Upload and Media Recording submissions in the Canvas Student app, view the Canvas Media Comparison PDF.
