Has anyone else noticed the following behavior in Canvas?
When you create a new discussion as a teacher or a course designer, your avatar and name gets assigned to it. A nice touch, isn't it?
Here is where it gets dicey. If I'm a course designer preparing a course site for a teacher, unless I masquerade as the instructor, the discussions show up under my name, which is at best confusing for students. And I have no other way to transfer the ownership back to the instructor. He has to recreate the discussions, period.
Another use case is when course imports are used. If I import a IMS CC .zip file from another site, the discussions will not be assigned to any user at all.
Could it be possible to enable:
- Unassign discussions so they don't show up as owned by anyone (like the second screenshot)?
- Transfer ownership back to another instructor in the class on individual discussions or in bulk?
That's it, thanks for voting up!
