How can I add my class times (create my schedule) or how to add lesson plans to courses? I cannot find this anywhere & have been using Canvas for a year now.
If anyone can help, that would be fabulous. Thanks much!
Rachel, I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "add my class times," but I'm guessing maybe you mean to the Calendar? If so, have you looked through the different guides available for the Calendar? Canvas Calendar Guides
Otherwise you might specifically be interested in the following guides:
For the Lesson Plan question it depends on whether you want students to view them or whether you're uploading them for your own use. In addition, are these just word documents or are they something else?
In general the Canvas Guides are an awesome place to learn about all things Canvas! Specifically check out the Canvas Instructor Guide
If I'm totally missing the boat please let me know and provide additional information about what you're trying to do. In addition, I'm going to also share this with the K-12 group in the Community to see if they can provide some insight into the problems you're having!
Kona provided you with a great set of resources that will help you get started and give you some ideas. I'd also suggest talking to other teachers at your school site to see how they are doing this. I say this, because students do appreciate it when teachers post things to Canvas in similar ways.
For instance, you could make an announcement each day and put your lesson plans in them, or you could make a Calendar item for each day that has the lesson plan or agenda items for the day. Other teachers may be uploading these into their courses as word docs in the files area. Or they might even make a new home page every week like Bryan Davis. So, if they have more than one teacher, it's best to agree upon some common course structures to help improve your student's user experience.
Please let me know if I can be of further help to you, Rachel. Hopefully this gives you some ideas of what is possible.
