Similar to adding a file, the easiest way to make an assignment available to students in Canvas is by adding it under a Unit.


To add an assignment to a unit, complete the following steps.

    1. Ensure that you have already created an assignment to add to the unit. See How to create an assignment in Canvas for more information.
    2. Once a Unit has been created in your module in the Units area, click the + icon on the right side of the module tab to open up the Add Item panel.
    3. Select Assignment from the drop-down list.
    4. Select the assignment that you have already created. Once added, your assignment should now be visible under your unit in Canvas. You or your student can click on the assignment  to view it in Canvas.
