In the course settings>course details area there's a feature called "Format." Two options are offered, "on-campus" and "on-line." Does this each choice automatically enable certain Canvas features?
Yours in suspense,
Solved! Go to Solution.
As @kona says, it's really just additional metadata at this point that may serve future analytics (as you can imagine, LMS data from a face-to-face course would look very different from data from a fully online course).
For the record, this is a setting that you can update through the Canvas course Settings page, or via an API call.
