Submitting work from Pages, Keynote and Numbers on your iPad

The screenshots below are from the Pages, but the process is similar for Keynote and Numbers. Before you begin you will also need the Canvas by Instructure app installed on your iPad. To set up this app, please see the following guide: Canvas App for iPad.

  1. Open your document that you’ve created in Pages, Keynote or Numbers. Click the ellipses (1) and then select Send A Copy (2).

    If you can’t find the ellipses, you’re using an older version of pages and this step will differ. Instead, In the upper right hand corner tap the Share button (1) then select Open in Another App (2).

After the document has been created, select Copy to Canvas (4) to make the document for available submission in the Canvas App. If you cannot see ‘Copy to Canvas’ you do not have the Canvas app installed on your iPad.
