Adding Due Dates to Your Canvas Course
You can create due dates in your course without requiring students to submit their coursework online. This enables students to check for upcoming assignments on their phone and the Web.
This article shows you how to add due dates (only) to your course.
Need help with this? Contact Academic Technology staff for assistance (opens in a new tab).
You will add an assignment, but set it as a paper submission (not an online submission).
Canvas displays the assignment. Now display all assignments.
Follow the same steps above to add more assignments, until all of the significant assignments in your course syllabus are listed.
Tip: If another assignment has similar identical requirements, you can duplicate the assignment, then revise.
Canvas displays all the due dates to your students on the Syllabus page.
Just one more step and your basic course is ready to go! Next, make the Syllabus page the Front Page of your course.
