Can a Canvas course be listed under two separate subcatalogs?  When I am trying to add a course listing to a subcatalog it is not populating and I am wondering if it is because it is already listed in another subcatalog.  Does anyone have any experience with this?  Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Hello, Is there a way to restrict file downloads such that the file is only viewable in a module and that students are not prompted/allowed to download to their local machine? All I can find is How do I restrict files and folders to students in Canvas? and that is not quite what we are looking to do.   Thank you, Shane

Hello!   Are there are any apps one could use to enable the students to read epub-files directly in Canvas? The dream scenario would be if they could open a regular page in a course and then find the e-pub reader ready for use on the course page.    Our students use their private computers and we want to minimize the amount of programs they… (Show more)

Click to view contentThere have been some important changes to developer keys (see the 14 Jul 2018 and 10 Oct. 2017 release notes) since my last blog post about what administrators should consider when issuing developer keys. Through feedback from the community and from our clients, I’ve noticed there is a lot of confusion surrounding developer keys in general, and… (Show more)
