Jan-Feb 2018 Workshop: The New Canvas Gradebook
Faculty can enable the new Canvas Gradebook on a per-course basis for Spring Semester. The New and improved Canvas Gradebook is more flexible and intuitive. Instructors can filter the view by modules or assignments due dates, “nudge” students who have not submitted, and apply late and missing policies to course assignment submissions. Participants in this workshop will enable the New Gradebook in one course and learn how to navigate and adjust settings.
Have you tried to import quiz/test questions from a document directly into Canvas? The only option is to cut-and-paste! Respondus software will process a document with quiz/test questions and export the questions directly into Canvas as a quiz or question bank. Bring a digital copy of a document with quiz questions for this hands-on training.
- SoftChalk Basics:
SoftChalk allows instructors to create interactive activities and “lessons” that integrate with the Canvas gradebook. In this session, participants will set up their LCCC SoftChalk Cloud account and create a Crossword Puzzle and a Drag-N-Drop activity and link it to Canvas.
