CTL Tip of the Week

Things you may want to do in Canvas this week

With fall semester starting there are a few things many instructors and instructional staff often want or need to do in Canvas. We’ve included links to help you with a handful of them below.

You will probably need to Customize your Courses drop-down menu to remove any courses from previous semesters, and possibly add some course to that menu too. You will need to Publish your Canvas course in order for your students to be able to see and access it. See How do I publish my course? for directions. Instructors at Michigan Tech can use the Combine Canvas Sections tool on the Course Tools page to combine two or more BANNER sections into one Canvas course. Go to Combining Canvas Sections for directions. If you would like to copy the content in one of your previous Canvas courses into a new Fall 2013 Canvas course, you can do that too. See Copying Content from Another Canvas Course to find out how.

You may just want some help or information. You can Contact Support or stop in to eLearning Walk-in Hours for Canvas Help.  And as always, for general information or help with Canvas at Michigan Tech, be sure to visit Canvas One Stop first. The CTL Tip of the Week is brought to you by the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) at Michigan Tech.
