Additional Due Dates in Canvas

Family emergency? Student needs to take an exam early? Did you know you can add separate due dates to existing assignments and quizzes for individual students?

It’s a common problem – life and technical glitches happen, and we often get requests to open up an exam or an assignment for a single student, but how do we do this without effecting the rest of the class?  Luckily Canvas includes a feature to add additional due dates, as well as individual lock and unlock dates, for individual students, groups of students, and course sections. Best of all, none of the other students in the class will be aware of these additional due dates – they will only see the ones that apply to them!

This quick video shows step-by-step how to add an additional due date to a Canvas assignment or quiz.
