I generally store a couple of extra pieces of information about my students in my local student records. Usually these are things like:
- Github ID
- identifying story or "fun fact" that students fill out early on (I use this as a mnemonic device to get to know my students)
Is there a way for me to store this information in Canvas, in a way that is accessible via the API? RIght now I have to store it separately and then merge my datasets whenever I want to have access to everything (since students can drop out for most of the semester here, I have to keep updating the database before I send out marks).
I'm asking not as an admin but as a teacher, so I'm looking for a solution that's in htat authorization scope.
