Can handwritten files be submitted to assignments in Canvas?

OCR Submissions in Canvas

Yes, as an instructor you can create assignments that accept images of handwritten content. Students will be able to upload an image of their paper through the same steps as they typically would take. Like any other accepted file such as a pdf, the image file will have its content scanned for plagiarism and will produce an interactive similarity report through the Canvas/Copyleaks integration.

Check out our video below for a step-by-step guide on how to submit an image file and view a similarity report.
