PLEASE NOTE - RE Timezones

If you haven't already had a chance, please ensure you set the Timezone correctly on your Jive (Canvas Community) account. We have had a few people get caught out by the dates and times being in a US timezone and showing as running a day earlier than the event. This event will run on the 10th July 2018 at 3:30PM AEST.


If you are in the Asia-Pacific region (APAC) and are in any type of Institution using, looking at using or starting to implement Canvas, please come along and join in the discussion. Having said that, even if you are not in the APAC region and would like to attend you are MORE than welcome, or if you would like to mark yourself as maybe attending so you can see the recording afterwards, please feel free!

This three-weekly meetup is a chance to talk with other institutions, including representatives from both a learning design/pedagogy and technical background.

Please note: The event will be recorded and the recording made available on YouTube for those that are unable to attend.

Always RSVP to an event (whether it's yes/no/maybe). It's a great way to get updates about this session, participate in follow-up discussions, and be notified of upcoming events similar to this topic or with this host.

Good morning to all! 

I have received one topic item for this catch-up regarding the first release of Priority: Anonymous & Moderated Marking - specifically Priority: Non-Scoring Rubrics.  naomi_h from RMIT has done some extensive testing and will bring her findings to the group for discussion. 

Please be sure to let me know if you have any other topics you would like to raise?

Thank you, I look forward to seeing you all next week.

Thanks Jayde. I am excited to hear Naomi's review because non-scoring rubrics is an addition that has caught my attention as something that might be valuable to us.
