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?
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)
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!
I am very excited about the new EquatIO LTI plugin that will seamlessly integrate with Canvas. This new app will be a game changer for math and science teachers and their students who want to create accessible (read aloud) digital math right from the Rich Content Editor. Here’s a quick preview of how it will work. To get started, simply…(Show moreShow less)
I had some faculty interested in allowing students to scan and submit handwritten work to their online courses. Creating a Canvas assignment that only accepts JPG pictures that students take with their phones wasn't good enough because instructors can't use the SpeedGrader (DocViewer) to annotate student work. So the solution we have now is…
Hi all! I have several teachers who use MyOpenMath (MOM) through Canvas. Recently, they've noticed that students can access MOM on their tablets through the Canvas app, but not through their phones. In fact, when I added Canvas Student to my mobile devices, I can't view MOM assignments in either (under the "Submission" tab, I click "Launch…(Show moreShow less)
Thank you! According to the teacher, it works on iPads and other tablets, but not on student phones in the app. I'm following up with her to see if students are using the app on their tablets (which just perpetuates my question), or if they are using the browser (which I think answers my question).
I added the Geogebra graphing LTI and whilst I would like to have the option of it on a page, it works well on a module. The only issue I have is that size of it. On our Canvas page there is a HUGE white space not being used at least 1/3 of the available page is empty. Is this just me? Anyone know how to improve on this?
