What is "Format" in course settings?

Jump to solution

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,

Rebecca

 @rgordon ​, nope, that feature doesn't actually do anything. I've heard that at some point it might be a way to classify courses and might be used for Canvas catalog, but that's it.

Thanks so much!

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.
