Global Announcement with verification

Jump to solution

Hello,

With SACSCOC strongly suggesting adding a statement on Financial Literacy and having a way to verify the students read or heard the statement; is there a way to put a statement about Financial Literacy at the first of the semester in the Global announcements rather than each course and have a button or some way to sync with our SIS to know who has read the statement and who has not?  

I thought about adding a link to a form spreadsheet for them to click on and fill out but I was hoping the analytics could capture it in some way I am not aware of.  Any thoughts?  Just having a block that they could check mark.  I verify I have read the above statement would be great.

Chris,

Thank you for the follow-up. The closest thing I have figured out is to capture a Studio video and use the insights in the class to see who actually at least turned the video on and left it playing the entire time.

Hello ssynan@ec.edu...

I am not sure of an answer for you, so I have shared your question with the Canvas Developers‌ group here in the Canvas Community in hopes that your question will get some additional exposure.  In reading your question, there's nothing I can think of from the current Canvas user interface that would allow admins to do what you are asking.  But, maybe there is a way via some back-end coding or something.  My other initial thought is that it would be really hard to know if a specific user actually read what you wanted them to read...even if they checked a box.  How do you really know that they read it?  I would equate this with reading through a long end user license agreement page just to create an online account on a website.  People very rarely read those things, and they just check "I agree" to breeze right by.  I'll admit, I've done that several times...and I imagine you'd get people that do that, too.

Good evening, ssynan@ec.edu...

Checking in with you again...we've not heard back from you since you first posted your question on July 2, 2019.  It seems as though you may have stumped the Community with your question (not really counting my response above an a "solution").  Have you been able to find any answers on your own since you first posted your question in early July that you'd be willing to share back here in this topic?  If so, it would be great to hear from you.  Or, if you are still looking for some help with your original question, please let us know that as well by posting a note below.  For the time being, I am going to mark your question as "Assumed Answered" since we've not heard back from you and since there hasn't been any new activity in this topic for just over five months.  However, that won't prevent you or others from posting additional questions and/or comments below that are related to this topic.  I hope that's okay with you, Sharon.  Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.
