Assignments are created in 2 Steps:
1.The assignment shell, or place-holder is created. This shell contains the assignment name, type, due date and value.
2.Leave your shell in place and complete the actual assignment content later, or continue with content creation as soon as the shell details are complete.
Assignments can be created from several places in Canvas. Regardless of how you choose to create an assignment, the assignment will appear in the Syllabus. It will also appear in the Calendar if it has a due date, and it will appear in the Grades section.
Here are the places where you can create an assignment shell.
