We have a Canvas Course for our campus that use for many purposes such as having the students vote for Homecoming Queen, Class Officers, etc.  To accomplish this, we have been creating assignments with links to the ballots and setting availability dates and times so they can only vote on a specific date at a specific time. We are wanting to extend… (Show more)

This is our first year of rostering via Clever and our SIS (Aspen) in our K-12 district. Things have gone very well, but we've had issues when a teacher leaves. This fall we've had several teachers go on leave, or resign. Canvas admins are not always notified, and the change in the SIS leads to the teacher and the course being deleted. We can… (Show more)

Is there a way to disable the option for students to be able to create discussions.  We want them to respond to the discussions and reply to each others, but we would rather not have them have the ability to begin a discussion for the class on their own.

We are considering integrating Canvas with Powerschool. I am interested in how that works for you.  Some pros and cons I might consider before we make that plunge.  I would especially like some feedback from folks in Michigan. #Powerschool

I am looking for some best practices/examples for how your elementary teachers are using Canvas with students. All teachers currently have a required homepage but most have not stepped into the world of having students interact with Canvas.

Is there a setting in the gradebook that will alert my teachers when they've made a comment on an assignment. Currently, they see grades in the gradebook, but they have to click on individual scores to remember whether or not they have left a personal comment. It would be great if the assignment/score cell could be set to change color or have a… (Show more)
