Student Nomination Comments About What They Found Beneficial :

  • “Very easy to use and understand their canvas sites”

Student identified “best practices” of Canvas use that you do:

  • Use of submitting assignments online
  • Use of Assignment Due Dates
  • Posting of all assignment material/ directions. info
  • Use of Inbox to communicate
  • Frequent grade entry
Brief summary of how you implement/ have setup any of the above that you selected?

I try to put all assignments- at least the majority- in at the beginning of the year. The students have mentioned they like the fact that these show up on the calendar and they get a reminder.

What is at least 1 other specific Canvas practice beyond those mentioned above that you do/ have done and believe has helped student success & retention in your courses?

I really don’t feel that I have done anything real fancy with Canvas. In fact, there is so much more I would like to learn, but I do keep up to date with it and always start the year with a cartoon or two and the students seem to appreciate that!
