Important - End of Term Canvas Reminders!
As we approach the end of the Spring 2022 Undergraduate term, we’d like to remind you of a few important notes relating to Canvas:
- Canvas runs on a terms system, meaning that all Undergraduate Spring 2022 courses will close to students on June 1st at 12am and will be available in read-only format to instructors beginning at this time. This is done to preserve the academic integrity of the courses for the term. More detailed information about terms can be found on our Canvas Terms page: https://canvas.bryant.edu/terms-in-canvas/
- As such, after this time, instructors will not be able to edit or change any content, but will still be able to copy content to new course shells and view student submissions and grades. A reminder that the steps to do this can be found here: https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Instructor-Guide/How-do-I-view-grades-for-inactive-or-concluded-student/ta-p/753
- If instructors wish to batch download multiple student submissions for the same assignment, it is advised to do this before June 1st.
- If a student in your course has not submitted all of the work for the course and requires a grade of Incomplete please be sure to submit the proper paperwork to the Registrar’s Office by the end of term, May 17th.
- After June 1st, if you would like to view your past courses, you may do so by following this guide: https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Instructor-Guide/How-do-I-view-all-my-Canvas-courses-as-an-instructor/ta-p/704
If you have any questions about Canvas or need Canvas support, please email email@example.com rather than individual CTE members. We ask kindly that you do this to ensure prompt response time, as we anticipate heavy email volume at the end of the semester.
WHAT IS CANVAS?
Canvas is a course management system that supports online learning and teaching. It allows professors to post grades, information, and assignments online. It is being used by universities and colleges all over the world.
Canvas offers a more user-friendly experience for students, staff, and faculty, and provides tools and features that can expand learning activities, improve assessment strategies, and provide new opportunities for collaboration. Program coordinators and Chairs will find the Outcomes Assessment features in Canvas particularly helpful in assessing course- and program level learning outcomes. Coordination of multi-section courses is also much easier for both instructors and course coordinators with tools to combine sections for to create “blueprints” for multiple sections.
Canvas’s mobile app for both instructors and students offer a huge improvement over other learning management systems. Apps are available for both iOS and Android.
