Canvas - How do I create an assignment?

Assignments will need to be created for any item the instructor wishes to appear in the gradebook. As an instructor, you can create a variety of assignment types for your students, including online submission, paper submissions, quizzes, and discussion posts. Assignments can be categorized into groups and weighted.
