Occasionally you need to amend an assignment or quiz to give a student or group of students a differentiated due date. If you change the Assign to area to that person(s) name, you will lose all of your other students’ grades. Here’s what you need to do.
Select the +Add button below your original assigned to area.
Add the student(s) names to the new box that appears. Add their individualized due dates.
This maintains the integrity of the quiz and keeps all of your original quiz/assignment data.
Is it ever too late to get it back? No. Just go back into the assignment/quiz, select the +Add button, select Everyone and put back the original due date and availability windows, if given. All the previous grades will re-populate.

A new security feature for Zoom Cloud Recordings in Canvas was recently deployed. Recordings must be published for students to be able to access them. You can do this by selecting the Publish button next to the Zoom recording. If a recording is not published, students will not be able to access it. There is no default setting to turn the publishing feature on; it must be manually enabled by the instructor per recording.
