Restrict File Types
Did you know you can choose to restrict submissions to specific file types, such as pdf, docx, etc., when you create an online assignment in Canvas. Students will then be limited to turning in only those types of documents.
Please Note: When using SpeedGrader in Canvas the document viewer will only render certain file types. To view a list of those file types click here: What types of files can be previewed in Canvas? (PDF and Microsoft Office documents are on this list)
