SmartMusic: Sync grades and assignments in SmartMusic

SmartMusic: Sync grades and assignments in SmartMusic

(3)

As a music teacher thrown into distance learning, I have learned a lot about different LMS, however many people have recommended Canvas as an option.

Many band directors and orchestra directors have come to rely upon SmartMusic to distribute playing assignments to make distance learning as authentic as possible. SmartMusic gives feedback on a students playing and much help to improve their playing without a teacher present. I will be moving to Canvas starting next year and would love SmartMusic to sync with Canvas.

Examples of different types synchronization would be:

  • Ability to click on assignments in Canvas and be sent to the assignment in SmartMusic.
  • Grades being synced from SmartMusic to Canvas, if a teacher opts for that.

Thank you for your consideration of this idea and I look forward to working with the Canvas community!

Hi, jennifer_payne@abss.k12.nc.us  and Welcome to the Canvas Community! We're looking forward to working with you too. Smiley Happy 

We've opened this idea for voting as a request for a partner integration with SmartMusic. Development of partner integrations requires both parties to be willing to devote resources to the project, so if you haven't yet done so, would you please contact the maker of SmartMusic to express your interest? I found this contact page on their website.

Yes, ma'am! I contacted them first. This has been a feature request in SmartMusic already. I am working on promoting this idea in the SmartMusic community, in light of distance learning, to help make music education as productive and engaging as possible. 

Here is the link on SmartMusic's feature request: SmartMusic and Canvas Integration

Thank you so much!

I am also working with a band director at our school who will benefit from this integration!

We're hoping for this integration as well! Fingers crossed before we're back to distance learning/ a hybrid model in the fall.

We are going 100% online this Fall and we really need for SmartMusic to be able to be integrated into Canvas. The management of both of these programs all while doing online zoom classes every day will be much simpler if they can communicate with each other. SmartMusic is a great program for kids and a big part of our virtual learning plan.

Our district just purchased SmartMusic for all of our students. Integration with Canvas would definitely help!
