Disable “What If” Feature

Lindsay Henry in Canvas Studio 4 months ago

As helpful as the “what if” feature can be, many students become obsessed with their grade as they create hypothetical situations that lead to “grade grubbing”.  We all know too well the “I needed a 92 on the project to have an A and I was only one point away so is there anything I can do?” situation with a student.     I propose that teachers …Read More

Stamps or Stickers for quick, motivating, feedback on written assignments

Tamara Molina in Canvas Studio 2 days ago

Normally when I grade a Biology lab write up on paper, I’m able to write simple check-marks to indicate to the students that they’ve done a good job.  Teachers don’t have time to write extensive comments on every part of an assignment.  A simple check-mark or smiley face communicates to the student that they’ve met the goals of the assignment in …Read More

Re-sorting Rubric Criteria

I called HELP and their suggestion was to re-do the entire Rubric!!!!! What good …Read More

James McLean in Find Answers 1 week ago

On the Front Page for my course, I have several links to external URLs.  They are just simple HTML links—for instance, the HTML tags do not have a target attribute.  Some of them, when clicked, create a new tab in my browser (that is, target=”_blank” type behavior).  Others, when clicked, open in the same browser tab, entirely replacing the Canvas …Read More

Docviewer – default palette of icons/ images

Jeff Ferner in Canvas Studio 5 months ago

My skill with drawing using a mouse in Docviewer  is rather lackluster.  So my thought is a palette of predefined images would be ever so helpful.  A question mark, green check mark, new paragraph, etc. would be rather useful.  Any interest?   …Read More
