Looking for ways to integrate Canvas into my 6th grade math class using chromebooks. I already incorporate discussions and assignments, but having a difficult time making assessments that aren't T/F or multiple choice. Fractions are difficult to type in for 11 year olds! Any suggestions?
This year I'd like to post some specific "online classroom norms" similar to those I tended to post on the wall when I had a physical classroom. I have some ideas for things I want to make a specific point about, but I'd love to see what other k-12 teachers are doing in terms of rules or norms for their Canvas classrooms. (I teach 7th-12th grade…(Show moreShow less)
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)

When I used to teach in a classroom (I'm now in a hybrid online program where all the "homework" is in the form of Canvas Quizzes or Canvas Assignments rather than paper things I might orPreviewHide preview
I teach math classes online, and I'm curious if anyone else has had success with some of these plagiarism detection tools in a math environment. My particular issue is with "show your work/explain your process" problems where students are going through some kind of complicated story problem and explaining how they modeled and solved it.

I'm working on adding more questions to my test bank, and while I have developed several systems for getting various 2-D shapes and coordinate plane graph images for my questions (I usually end up constructing in GeoGebra and screenshotting these days, but I have thus far had nothing but frustration trying to use their 3-D option to get the kinds…(Show moreShow less)
I don't remember seeing this officially announced anywhere, but someone pointed me today to a message from June 8 in the APAC Community group talked about Canvas is now rendering equations using SVG instead of images.Changes to LaTex processor . The warning there was that some of the LaTeX commands are no longer supported. But the good news for…
