You don’t want your students to not succeed on an assignment or discussion simply because they were not able to figure out how to submit their work, they submitted it in the wrong format, or they missed the due date. Your assignment instructions, plus properly configuring the assignment options, may help lessen this issue.

  • You can restrict the file types accepted for a Canvas assignment.
