*Higher Education question about the New Gradebook*

Hi all,
I am wondering if anyone out there has advice on how the use of the New Gradebook's "Late Submission Policy". Currently the wording on the guide states "Points can be deducted per day or hour the submission is late."
However, at Swinburne we have a policy that states:
"astudent who submits an assessment after a due date will be penalised 10% oftheir achieved result for each working day the task is late, up to a maximum of5 working days."
In Canvas as it currently stands, it appears (and correct me if I'm wrong), that the new Late Submission Policy does not (or has no way to) distinguish between working days and/or working hours. As such, we have made the assumption that this will calculate across the weekends (and public holidays too I would guess). 

Has anyone encountered this yet or have made decisions on how they will be utilising/recommending this new feature? In theory, we were excited by this but have since discovered it may cause more confusion for staff if we aren't communicating this properly ahead of time. 
How do I apply a Late Submission policy in the Ne...

I am lucky enough to be able to co-chair this group with Gemma Sinclair and had fantastic support from Eman Rashwan also. As such, I thought it would be an… (Show more)

Click to view contentWhen the SCORM LTI tool used in Canvas was built, the focus was on using SCORM packages for assessment with the marks in the SCORM assessment being passed back to the Canvas gradebook. However, there are lots of instances where SCORM packages are created just for the purpose of showing content to students and not for assessment (or for more… (Show more)

Click to view contentThe Technologies Curriculum is such an exciting area of learning to incorporate into our classes. The Digital Technologies strand, in particular, is filled with fascinating challenges from Foundation to Year 10.  Where does Minecraft Education fit into all of this? And how can Canvas support the learning playground that Minecraft is?    ‘Play is… (Show more)

Click to view contentDoes anyone know of a way that rubrics can be imported? I know that outcomes can be BUT outcomes don't permit a RANGE option for results and once you import them into a rubric, they don't permit you to edit them. The new QLD syllabusses (yes that is actually the correct plural) use a range system for all their criteria. Below is an example of the… (Show more)

I was working with a teacher recently in a 7-10 school. He said he had changed the way he wrote in Canvas for the students and he felt this had had a big impact on the way the students interacted with the content.  He had framed the content around "I" questions. What am I leaning? What am I doing? How will I show my understanding? What will I… (Show more)

On my way to work I go past several schools and notice the different School Visions emblazoned on flags and gateways. It seems that over the past decades the trend has been to display school visions, mission statements and values for all to see. Of course much time and wisdom has gone into creating these statements that help create a school… (Show more)
