We could all (hopefully!) agree that students should not struggle to identify how they can be successful in a learning setting. So...how can educators ensure that students understand how to succeed and with that knowledge, have the ability to take charge of their own learning? Let’s dive into the powerful practice of crafting student and parent-friendly language based on standards, sometimes called learning targets or learning objectives, as one important answer to this question. We’re bringing the ability to create these statements that often start with “I can…” to Canvas as an “Outcome Friendly Descriptions” feature within Improved Outcome Management!

The Greek philosopher Heraclitus is credited with the idea that the only constant in life is change. Only fragments of his writings remain, one in which he says:

Everything changes and nothing remains still; and you cannot step twice into the same stream.

[2021-12-22 UPDATE: Migration is available in the beta environment]

In late December, “bulk” migration to New Quizzes will be available. We’ve conferred with the community about how multiple quizzes might migrate. When using one of those options, you may choose to have the quizzes and banks migrate to New Quizzes. 

This functionality is being released to the Beta environment only, because we’ve made a conscious decision not to release it to Production yet.

As promised, in this blog post I will share some further news on our progress with Canvas Data 2. In my previous post I mentioned why we needed to re-architecture our data pipeline and what things we are working on. This time, I would like to give you insights into the progress with the product, an overview of the features, what will and what will not be part of the initial release, and a high-level overview of the timeline. In the end of the blog post, I would like to ask you to please fill in a survey because we want to learn your needs to make CD2 not just a better version of CD1 but an amazing user experience that surpasses your expectations.

I love to DREAM!  Not the sleepy day-dreaming kind.  Data Rules Everything Around Me.  I love data and enjoy making sure a ‘story’ and its data match.  Lately, I have been talking with numerous people regarding standards making the statement; ‘Standards don’t change much’.  I decided to do a little research to see if that ‘story’ matches the data.

Read on for more information on how to use Canvas Learning Outcomes and an opportunity to show us how you are implementing CBE concepts in Canvas.

In linguistics, borrowing is the process by which a word from one language is adapted for use in another. The word that is borrowed is called a borrowing, a borrowed word, or a loanword. A familiar example of this in education is Kindergarten, which was borrowed from German Kindergarten, which literally means "children's garden". But where does the term "crosswalk" come from?
