In case you missed the Intro to Canvas Workshop (or even if you were there), here’s an outline of what we covered and some links to additional information:
- We talked about personal notifications and explained how to add a profile picture.
- We looked at the rich content editor and Tim showed everyone how to add a URL, embed a Youtube video, and record audio or video using the media comment.
- We talked about external apps and showed how you can add them to your course.
- Jodie walked the group through creating modules and then we looked at adding content to them.
- We examined many of the tools in Canvas including Assignments, Quizzes, Files, Pages, Discussions, and External Websites.
- We also took a look at the Calendar and saw how easy it was to move things around.
- We talked about setting a course home, editing the course navigation, publishing content and the course, and creating announcements.
- We also shared the secrets of the Student View and the Undelete feature.
- And, finally, we talked about how helpful it is to use the documentation and videos that Canvas provides.
