How do I create a Lucid assignment?

When you create or edit assignment details, you can choose to use Lucid Education Suite as a submission type. The Lucid submission type enables students to connect to and submit Lucidchart or Lucidspark documents. Lucidchart is an intelligent diagramming application that allows you to visualize complex ideas, systems, and processes. Lucidspark is a virtual whiteboard application that enables teams to ideate, design, and build better ideas.

With your Canvas account, you get free full access to the Lucid Education Suite for visual collaboration. Before accessing Lucid from within Canvas, you must set up and connect your free Lucid account.
