Using Announcements in Canvas

EdTech, Faculty Content, LMSRobyn Reese

For our Blackboard power users, the Canvas transition has produced some confusion around announcements because of the slightly different way that they are set up, migrated, and shared with students within our new LMS. Here are a few facets of Canvas Announcements that you should be aware of and, where possible, some ways that you can work around them.

Displaying your Syllabus in Canvas

Faculty Content, LMSBrandi Bleak

If you need some suggestions for the best way to post your syllabus to Canvas, it’s good to know that the process is relatively similar to the way that it was done within Blackboard. However, now you have some slightly different options for where you would like your students to view it within the course—but the final decision about how to display your syllabus is totally up to you!

As was the case with Blackboard, Fall course shells will be created automatically 90 days prior to the course start date. This has been our process for course shell creation since Spring 2018.
