I am new to Canvas via Crafton Hills College. Do you have cheat sheets that will walk me through through setting up my course?
Welcome to Canvas! The Community has a wealth of resources at your disposal. Firstly, here is a link to the Instructor Guide which has pretty much everything you need to get started. If you prefer a video format there are also video guides. We also have a dedicated Getting Started area of our community which is very helpful for new users.
Additionally, you could ask the Canvas Administrator at your institution to turn on what's called the New User Tutorial which would be viewable inside your Canvas courses when you login and help you get started with course building.
I hope this helps, and don't hesitate to ask if you have more questions
Thank you. Two specific questions:
1. Is there a link within the class for me to send a class wide email?
2. Can we change the look of the class?
Hi Theresa Herrick!
You can send a class-wide message to all by clicking on your Inbox icon in your Global Navigation bar (all the way to the left). Canvas calls these Conversations. This Doc will help you: How do I send a message to all course users in Conversations as an instructor?
To change the look and feel of a course, you do have a few options. One is the Course Navigation: How do I use the Course Navigation Menu as an instructor? Another is the course Home Page: How do I change the Course Home Page?
Hope this helps!
Thank you! It worked perfectly!
