This Day in History: Patrick Henry- “Give me liberty, or give me death.”

 

Give me liberty or death.png

 

On March 23, 1775, Patrick Henry, a politician later appointed to be the Governor of Virginia, coined the famous term, "Give me liberty, or give me death." On that day, Henry was rallying troops to fight against British oppression.

 

There were many events leading up to this particular day. France and Great Britain began to vie for power over the Western European exploration of North and South America. These two powers went to war for domination between 1754-1763, which resulted in the French and Indian War.

 

The French and Indian war was very costly for the British. Due to this, the British began to heavily tax the colonists. The first real oppression to British taxation began in 1765 when the Stamp Act was passed. Many colonists accepted these various taxes until the Tea Act in 1773, when oppression to British rule became more widely accepted.

 

On the day Henry gave his famous speech, he was addressing the Virginia Convention about living under such conditions. Henry said that he considered the subject a matter of choice between living in freedom or suffering as slaves. Henry said, "Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offence, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the majesty of heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings."

They'll include new account-level analytics such as how many courses are regularly accessed by students, which features and LTIs are most used, and much more.

This Day In History: St. Patrick's Day

 

 

Clover.png

 

The history of Saint Patrick's day dates back to the 17th Century, where it became an official Christian holiday. This holiday celebrates the death of Saint Patrick, who was the patron saint of Ireland, and involves such festivities as public parades, the wearing of shamrocks, as well as green or orange attire. However, there are a few lesser known facts about this holiday that people may not be aware of:

 

  • The first St. Patrick’s Day parade took place in New York City in 1762
  • St. Patrick was not Irish; rather he was raised in a well-to-do Roman family in modern day England
  • During the American Civil War, both the Union and Confederacy had whole brigades made up entirely of Irishmen
  • Until 1970, St. Patrick’s day was a "dry" holiday in Ireland
  • The shamrock is not the national emblem of Ireland; it is the harp.

  Canvas + Google = MAGIC!

Canvas.pnggoogle.pngPanda Magic.png

 

Featuring Jeremy Perkins, who is one of our top Canvas trainers.

Jeremy Perkins has spent exactly zero hours training as a magician. However, he does know how to make magic happen when using Google within Canvas. Jeremy is Instructure's most senior trainer, and before working for Instructure, he was a Middle School technology teacher. He is proficient in multiple languages, including nerd, and used to play sports before Instructure fattened him up.

 

Take Away Highlights:

1. Embedding Google Docs/Google Slides/Google Sheets

2. Using the HTML Editor

3. Enabling Google Doc Submissions

 

Tips and Tricks

 

Our new UI (User Interface) goes live for every client on July 9, 2016. If you want to brand your instance to represent your school colors and logo, start by playing with the theme editor when you log in. If you notice that you are having issues with the preview not keeping your changes, make sure that the “high contrast UI” feature is turned off under the admin settings. This will prevent custom branding. You can even brand specific sub-accounts (if you have multiple schools in your district using Canvas). Check out our Community page here to learn how: community.canvaslms.com.

This Day In History: Battle of Hampton Roads/Battle of the Ironclads

  < BACK TO TOP

 

 

image (13).png

 

During the American Civil War, a very small but influential battle took place at Hampton Roads, Virginia between the USS Monitor and CSS Virginia. The battle was very influential despite the fact that it ended in a draw.

 

At the start of the Civil War, the Union Navy was given the charge to blockade all Southern sea ports. The Southern State’s plans were to create machines, which could either batter their way through these blockades, run through them, or destroy them. The south found and used a partially sunken Union ship, the USS Merrimac, to create a new ship, later renamed the CSS Virginia. The USS Monitor was designed from the ground up to have no sails and be very low in the water.

 

On the day of the battle, the CSS Virginia was given the task to move through the Union blockade while the USS Monitor was to prevent the CSS Virginia from escaping or destroying the blockading ships. Over the course of several hours, both ships tried to destroy each other without doing any serious damage, because they both seemed “Ironclad.”

What is the Canvas FastTrack Video Series?

Traffic+Jam-200.png

Since Canvas was founded, in 2011, administrators have taken many different approaches to how they rollout Canvas at their institutions. There is not one perfect "one size fits all" way for everyone to implement Canvas and garner the attention and engagement to which most aspire.


The "Canvas FastTrack Video Series" is a quick video guide for teachers to help with the alignment of Canvas tools with SAMR (Substitution Augmentation Modification Redefinition) and the ways to perpetually increase user engagement! For the next 40 days we will present a new 2 1/2 minute video to the Community starting with the Substitution level of SAMR. Please click here to learn more!

This Day In History: President Abraham Lincoln

  < BACK TO TOP

image (12).png

On this day in 1861, President Lincoln was inaugurated as the 16th President of the United States. Although we are aware of the many accomplishments he achieved, there are other less known facts about Lincoln that are unique for a President. For instance, he is the only President who had obtained a patent by 1849. Lincoln apparently enjoyed tinkering with machines and created a device that kept boats afloat while going through shallow water without dragging. These devices took the shape of empty metal barrels to give a boat more buoyancy. He also enjoyed testing new firearms outside of the White House close to the modern day National Mall. Lincoln also created the Secret Service and put it into legislation, ironically, just hours before he was assassinated on April 14, 1865.
