As a student, you should save a personal copy of your submitted files. Depending on how your instructor has set up the course, you may be able to save course files.
You can download your submissions individually by course or download all submissions from all courses.
Individual Submissions. To download a single submission, navigate to the Assignments page within your course.
In the upper-right corner,there is a submission box. Click the Download link.
All Submissions. Navigate to your Account Settings page. Then, click the Download Submissions button below your email contact information.
See How do I download assignment submissions from all my courses? for details.
Backing Up Course Files
You can download documents, print grades or save and print course material as needed.
Download documents, such as PDFs and Words documents. If the Files section is not enabled, navigate to the document within the Modules or Assignments area.
Downloadable content displays with a cloud icon on the Modules or Assignment page to the left of the content name.
Then, click the Download link located below the document name.
Print Grades. Navigate to the Grades section and click Print Grades.
Save and Print Discussion Threads or Pages. There is currently not a way to save and print discussion threads or Pages through the Canvas interface. Current best practice is to highlight and copy the discussion thread and then paste it into Microsoft Word.
Some have found it useful to use web clipper tools, such as Evernote, as an alternative solution. Please review the Canvas community for additional ideas.
