This video is another in the series of Student Guides for Mesa Community College's Canvas Classrooms.
This time, we're going to talk about finding and submitting assignments.
You'll find your assignments listed in several places inside of Canvas. When you first log in, you'll see them listed in the task menus on your dashboard. Clicking n the link will take you directly to the instructions for that assignment.
You can also go to an assignment directly from the Calendar or from the list you see by clicking on the Assignments button on the Dashboard. Inside a course, clicking on the Syllabus button brings up an assignments list as does clicking on the Modules button.
Anywhere you see an assignment listed, click on the link to go directly to the instructions, which will usually include the due date and time, and how the assignment will be graded.
When you're ready to submit your assignment, click on the Submit Assignment button on the right, which opens up the Submit Assignment window. First, you select the type of assignment you want to submit. Your instructor may want you to upload a file, enter some text, enter a web address, a Google Doc, or an audio or video recording.
To upload a file already on your computer, choose this tab and then click on this button to select the file.
If your instructor wants you to enter text into a window like this one, you could just start typing, but if the assignment is very important, you should compose your text with a word processor, such as Open Office or even Google Docs, and then save file to your computer. That way you can be sure all your work doesn't get lost if the power goes off. Then, copy and paste your text into this window. You can edit the text if you like and add italics or make other formatting changes before you click on the Submit button.
If your instructor wants you so send a web address, you enter that here.
Your instructor may allow you to submit a Google Doc from your personal Google account or your Maricopa Google account. But before you can submit a Google Doc for the first time, you must authorize Canvas to access your Google account.
The easy way is to exit Canvas and sign on to your Google account. Then click on "Authorize Google Docs Access" in the Submit Assignment window. Click on "Leave this page" to go back to your Google account. Then, in Google, pick the account you want to use and Google will confirm that you are allowing Instructure.com to access your files. Click on "Grant Access." Back in Canvas, you'll then see all your Google Docs listed. Select the one you want to send to your instructor, and then click on "Submit Assignment." Your instructor will then receive a copy of that document, but the original will still be in your Google account.
If your instructor wants to hear your lovely voice or see your smiling face, you can upload a media file you've already created, or you can use Canvas to make a recording with your own microphone or webcam. When you're done recording, click on "Submit" and watch for the confirmation message.
By the way, if your assignment doesn't upload properly, click on the "Resubmit Assignment" button and start over.
In the video on Canvas Notifications, we show you how to set up Canvas Classrooms to notify you when the grade has been posted.
