Submitting Assignments

Below is a video containing instructions for submitting an assignment in Quercus.

If you encounter a technical problem while uploading your assignment, please send the following information to your instructor and to the UTM Library at or consult with staff on the main floor of the UTM Library:

As well, the Canvas Student mobile app should not be used for any high-risk activities such as submitting assignments or quizzes—important tasks and assessments should be completed on a desktop or laptop computer instead.

If you experience a technical problem while submitting an assignment from a computer on campus, please also provide:

  • Location of the computer (e.g., Library electronic classroom, Library information commons)
  • Number on the computer (e.g., LIBPC-12) which is located on the monitor of the computer being used
