How do I upload a file as an assignment submission in the Student app on my Android device?
You can upload media files from your Android 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.
