Canvas Instructors can download Student Submissions in the following ways.

Active Courses
If the course is active and you are an Instructor in the course, you can select an Assignment and access the “Download Submissions” link on the right-hand side of the screen. This will download all the submissions for that assignment. If you want to download specific student submissions, open the SpeedGrader and select the student whose submission you want to download. Click the Disk icon to download.

Concluded Courses
GSD courses are normally concluded on July 1st.  When a course is concluded, extra steps are required to download student submissions.  Please contact [email protected] for more information.

Please Note:
FERPA protects student work. Should you wish to store student work outside of Canvas, you must adhere to HUIT’s data security guidelines for Level 3 data. Should you wish to keep or use student work for any non-GSD purposes, you must seek permission directly from the student/s.
