||Options in Canvas
||Text Assignment Submission
||Canvas does not have a separate Journal tool. Users are encouraged to create a Text Entry Assignment instead.
||Discussion Board or 3rd party tool
||Have students use a 3rd party application such as Blogger.com and share the URL with the class or create them their own Discussion Board in the course or a Group
||Pages with adjusted editing permissions
||The workaround does not work as cleanly as wikis, however Pages will work. You’ll need to change the permissions of that page to allow students to edit.
|Manual Grade Column
||New Assignment -> No Submission
||You cannot add a manual grade column directly to the Grade Book in Canvas (as you can in Blackboard). You must create a new assignment, and in the “Submission Type” settings, set to “No Submission.”
How do I create assignmnent columns for non-submission Assignments?
