Using Inbox Zero to Change Your Thoughts on Email

Using Inbox Zero to Change Your Thoughts on Email

Several years ago I realized that my attitude when I got to work was often driven by my inbox.

Adding a Quizlet to a Canvas allows students to study with digital flashcards or play games to memorize terms.  Embedding a Quizlet into Canvas is as easy as adding the app in Canvas (settings>apps>scroll to Quizlet and click to add the app).  Once added, you will find the icon everywhere you find the rich content editor in Canvas.  Click on the icon, search for a topic, then embed the deck (see below).  If you want to embed a Quizlet you create, a free account must be setup at quizlet.com.  Click the card below to see the answer or change the study mode to something fun like “Space Race”.
