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
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.
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!
