This is also Canvas, our new learning management platform we are piloting this term. It rocks! It is also super easy to use compared to D2HELL. Here is what you need to know to get started:
- Here are extensive and easy to read guides on how the site works:http://guides.instructure.com/m/4212
- Canvas will send course announcements and notifications (such as when grades are posted) automatically to whatever device/address you wish. Go here http://guides.instructure.com/s/2204/m/4212/l/45879-how-do-i-change-my-notification-preferences-in-canvas to see how it is done.
- There is an app for that! Canvas is also fully functional on tablets.
- If you click on the Modules link in the navigation bar you will get a week-by-week breakdown of all assignments and schedules. You can get to any quiz, workshop, discussion, or assignment from here.
