Canvas: Assignments & Discussions

Tuesday, 5/21 (12:00-12:45) in Zoom

These Canvas tools allow you to engage your students with both formative and summative assessment.

  • Explore the many types of assessments you can offer your students through the Canvas Assignment tool, like paper uploads, worksheet annotation, link submissions, and more. We’ll also take a look at group assignments and peer review.
  • Engaging students with the Canvas Discussion tool can help your online classroom come aliveā€”or allow classroom discussions to overflow into virtual space.

We will review the basics of using each tool and discuss potential uses in your courses.

Canvas: Grades & Speedgrader

Wednesday, 5/22 (12:00-12:45)

This session will feature a ‘how-to’ of setting up your Canvas Grades, including weighted course grade calculation. Say good-bye to downloading and uploading student assignments! Speedgrader allows you to provide meaningful feedback to students, including annotations on their submission, directly from Canvas. We’ll take a look at the options for you to record audio or video feedback as well.

Canvas: Prepping your course site

Thursday, 5/23 (12:00-12:45)

This workshop will highlight some of the most helpful ‘to-do’s before making your site available to students, whether you’re copying content from a previous semester or starting from scratch. Join us to help ensure your course site is ready to go and set up for success!
