What do you do if your school or district changes courses at the end of the semester, but your MasteryConnect Tracker is set up to measure student progress for the entire school year? We have a solution, link that Tracker to a different course.
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!
[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.
When Impact (formerly EesySoft) was welcomed into the Instructure family last July, no one on the team could quite anticipate the amount of change, excitement, and enervation that comes with a marriage between companies.
When our customers file support cases that get triaged as bug tickets, some are fixed while others are “shelved”, hoping engineering can get to them later. We’re refining our processes to make clear decisions more quickly and keep you informed about the status of your bug reports.
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.
We all know that data matters. Over the last few years there has been an increasing demand for easily accessible, accurate, actionable data in all educational products. Catalog is not an exception, and we would like to make sure that the reporting and analytics solutions that are available in Catalog serve your data needs.
We have some exciting improvements coming to the Tier 1 Support experience, which we anticipate will help provide even better support for our customers. While the implementation of these features is still some time away, we were too excited to wait and wanted to give you a sneak peek of what we are hoping to be included in this rollout.
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.
A few months ago, an article in the Washington Post focused on how Competency-Based Education and related initiatives such as Standards-Based Grading are receiving attention from K-12 school districts and higher education institutions as a way of responding to pandemic and pre-pandemic related educational challenges in the United States and across the world. We know many of you are using, tinkering with, or considering Canvas as part of your systems for building, assessing, and tracking student mastery of outcomes. 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.
As I have mentioned in my previous post, the engineering team is working on adding a shopping cart to Catalog. We have broken down this improvement into 3 different phases, and we will roll them out to Catalog Beta in 3 different steps.
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?
