With the return to somewhat normalcy, I would like to be able to have the submission be open to both on line and physical.  I have had some students that print out the assignment and then want to physically turn in that assignment.  I can go to grades and put in the grade for that assignment, but when I try to message students that have not turned in the assignment, they get notified as well even though they physically turned in the assignment. 

 

Can I make an assignment both physical and on-line submission?

When we go into the moderate on the new quizzes it would be really nice if somehow there could be a sign that we have already adjusted a score.  Either a color change on the attempt or a little symbol somewhere.  It is very time consuming to go through assignments and adjust scores to have kids turn in work late and not be able to see what scores I’ve already looked at. Thank you for considering this.

When I try to open zoom in one of my  canvas courses, an error message appears saying I am an unrecorgnized user. I have a valid zoom account. I have checked to see if I am signed in. I pulled zoom into my navigation area according to the directions from canvas. Now I get the following message: 

Warning
User does not exist: kkletter@methodist.edu.
Error Code 1001 - INT_f282bcd54b244c88
 
I don't know what to do. My email address is correct.

I am a special education co-teacher. I have 6 canvas courses I am a teacher in with the general education teacher and in 5 I can add observer teachers of record for special education students and the observer automatically is added to my people in the course.

However, I have one course where the observers are added but do no automatically get added and must accept when they log into canvas. How is this different? I want to be able to add the observers automatically without them having to to accept so I can link their caseload students to them.

Hey Teachers,

I generally make videos to help faculty learn to use technology and learning management software. However, knowing that there are a lot of parents and students going online or hybrid for the first time this semester, I decided to make a Professor Frazzled video just for them. 

This video shares 5 tips to help students succeed in an online class. And, of course, it also features a puppet. I hope you find this useful.

Good Luck!

Nate
