What Others Are Saying About Canvas ...
"Teaching on a New Canvas" - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education
Canvas was reviewed recently by ProfHacker, a Chronicle of Higher Education blog focused on tips about teaching, technology and productivity. The author concludes: "Overall, I’m extremely satisfied by Canvas and have found it to be superior to all other Learning Management Systems I have tried. I especially appreciate its customizability and flexibility." To read the blog post and accompanying comments,click here.
Information about Fall 2014 courses:
- Course sections will appear in Canvas as they are finalized by the Registrar.
- Students and instructors will be added and removed automatically throughout the registration process as they enroll in, add or drop classes.
- By default, all Canvas courses are initially in an unpublished (unavailable) state. We encourage you to keep your courses in their unpublished (unavailable) state until you’re ready for students. In the meantime, when you go to a course you may get a Next Steps pop-up along the bottom of your screen. This course setup checklist is helpful, but you can ignore it for now. Only the instructor/teacher can see an unpublished course. Caution: Publishing a course in Canvas is a one-way street. This action cannot be reversed.
Migrating your Blackboard course content
February 14, 2014 was the last day that instructors can access Blackboard at Le Moyne.
As a routine backup process, IT staff created course export zip files for all Blackboard courses from Fall 2011 through J-mester 2014. If needed, these Blackboard course export files may be used to move course content into Canvas. If you need to access an archived Blackboard course, then submit a request to the Service Desk that includes the course prefix, number, section, and term (e.g., PHL101-05-FA12).
