Using Spell Check Within Canvas
The Spell Check function in Canvas should already be activated as a part of the course. Simply begin typing your post and words that are misspelled should be marked with a red underline. You can right-click on the underlined word to see alternative spelling options and correct the word.
Please Note: The spell check feature within Canvas does not check for punctuation or grammar. Some students choose to write discussion posts within Microsoft Word first and then copy them into Canvas upon completion. This allows for the other features not found within Canvas and may be a good option if you want to save and keep your discussion posts.
