I'm working with an instructor on an upper level accounting class. The previous version of the course had some ho-hum discussion questions. He's fairly new, and I'd love to give him some ideas for good discussion questions. Does anyone have some awesome discussions for an accounting course? This is a managerial accounting course, but I think just…(Show moreShow less)
Hi, Katie, having never taught accounting, I definitely don't have an immediate answer to your question, but I wanted to let you know that I've flipped the format over to an open-ended discussion since it's likely to prompt multiple good responses with no single one emerging as uniquely correct—and that I've shared it with the Higher Education andPreviewHide preview
Hi Darrell and welcome to the Canvas Community. Great question. Although I teach primary/elementary I've joined the Teaching Math in Canvas group for some ideas. This might be a good place to start for you - and an excellent group to join. PreviewHide preview
Shelton State Community College implemented Canvas in the Fall 2016 semester, so we're still somewhat new. The College has implemented Respondus' LockDown Browser for online courses. Our Math faculty want to know how to give exams in online courses so that students must show their work on each problem. The faculty use the "show your work"…(Show moreShow less)
I am about to pilot a course in the fall. Our district has not yet adopted an LMS, but may adopt the following year. 1. I am planning to build many question banks/quizzes this summer. Should I wait until Quizzes.Next is ready or start with the current Quizzes? 2. Will Quizzes.Next be available this fall on a free teacher account? 3.…(Show moreShow less)
1. I would probably wait on the new stuff. I think Quizzes.Next is cool, but as of the end of my school year a few weeks ago you couldn't copy them from one course to another yet. Hopefully that comes soon. There are so many features of Quizzes.Next I want to use. The last time I asked I was told by our admins that there would be a way to migrate…
I am attempting to embed my first image inside the Rich Content Editor for a Question bank question. I have uploaded the image into my course files. When I choose the embed image icon I don't see the image in the Canvas folder. What am I missing?
Many times, we write quizzes that get progressively more difficult. I would love a feature where students can get grades as they go on a quiz. In other words, they can submit their answer for question 1 and see correct answers and/or comments before they have to submit their answer for question 2. By doing such, a student could determine if they…(Show moreShow less)
In problems in physics and engineering, answers require units to be meaningful. In designing a quiz question, there should be an option to require that a unit be provided ("3 kg" instead of "3".) If no unit is provided, or if the unit is incorrect, only partial credit should be given. As a physics professor, I have found that student performance…(Show moreShow less)
I'm curious if any Canvas users have had students take photos of handwritten work, then uploaded those images (homework, exam) to a SpeedGrader assignment for authentic feedback...meaning, more than just multiple choice, right/wrong feedback. I'm impressed with the ability to quickly snap pictures, use the Canvas Student App to upload to an…(Show moreShow less)
Hi All, I'm a Canvas newbie who is interested in using the Discussion function in my middle school math classroom (primarily with 6th graders). I am a little hesitant with concerns that students will be distracted by the forum and not really dig deep into the math content. Any suggestions or recommendations for a first time Canvas user? …(Show moreShow less)
Great discussion starter Donna. I used discussions as a reflection tool after maths lessons. Worked really well. I borrowed some reflection ideas from Rob Vingerhoets. Rob Vingerhoets Maths is Fun | Maths doesn't have to hurt DUDE!
