What is the Dashboard?

What is the Dashboard?


The Dashboard is the first thing you will see when you log into Canvas. The Dashboard helps you see what is happening in all your courses and allows you to figure out what to do next.

The Dashboard is designed to answer the questions, "What is going on in all of my courses?" and "What do I need to do next?"

Global Navigation


The Global Navigation directs users to menus or pages that display:

  1. All of a user's courses and groups,
  2. All of a user's assignments,
  3. A grade summary page, and
  4. The Calendar.

These four menus and pages will display different items depending on whether you are a student or an instructor. Under Assignments, for example, Instructors will see assignments that need to be graded and students will see assignments that need to be turned in.

Sidebar


The Sidebar contains three helpful feeds:

  1. The To Do feed lists the next five assignments you need to turn in (if you are a student) or you need to grade (if you are an instructor). Assignments will still show up in this list even if they are past due. Click on the links to go directly to the Assignments page.
  2. The Coming Up feed lists the next five assignments or events coming due in the next week.
  3. The Recent Feedback feed lets students know when their instructor has left a comment or a grade for one of their submissions. The same feed will let instructors know when students have left comments about work they have evaluated. This feed helps students and instructors keep the conversation alive around Assignments.

Global Stream

The Global Stream contains a stream of recent activity from all of your courses. There are announcements, discussions, assignment notifications, and conversations. This activity stream helps students and teachers to stay on top of what is going on in the course and allows them to easily ask questions and post to discussion forums. You can view the details of each section by hovering in the section area and clicking the Show More button.

Add Extra Time on Current Attempt for Timed Quizzes

If the student is currently taking a timed quiz, the remaining time will display next to a clock icon.

To extend the time on the quiz, click the clock icon.

Canvas will show you what time the quiz began, and what time it is scheduled to end. You have two options for extending the quiz time.

1. Extend Quiz from Now
If you want to end the quiz in relation to the current time, select the Now option in the drop down menu.

As an example, a student is taking a 20 minute quiz that he or she started at 11:30 am, and the quiz is set to end at 11:50 am [1]. You moderated this quiz at 11:40, meaning that 10 minutes have gone by. However, you want to have the quiz end at 11:45. Since the current time is 11:40, you need to give the student only 5 minutes. Enter 5 minutes into the End the quiz _____ minutes from field [2], and select the now option in the drop down menu [3].

Click Extend Time.

Changing the time in relation to the Now option might mean that the student will have less time than was originally on the clock. In our example, the student still had 10 minutes remaining when the instructor moderated the quiz. Changing the time to 5 minutes means the student has 5 fewer minutes to take the quiz.

If you want to change the option, click Cancel. Otherwise, click OK.

The clock will reset to 5 minutes remaining and count down on the Moderate Quiz page.

2. Extend Quiz from Current End Time
If you want to end the quiz in relation to the current end time of the quiz, select the current end time option in the drop down menu.

As an example, a student is taking a 20 minute quiz that he or she started at 11:30 am, and the quiz is set to end at 11:50 am [1]. You moderated this quiz at 11:30, meaning it was nearly the same time that they student started the quiz, and you want to extend the quiz to end at noon. If the current end time is 11:50am and you want to extend it by 10 minutes, enter the number 10 into the End the quiz _____ minutes from field [2], and select the current end time option in the drop down menu [3].
Click Extend Time.

The clock will reset to display the remaining time the student had, plus 10 minutes, and count down on the Moderate Quiz page.

Add Extra Attempt through Student Quiz Results

Another way to give a student an extra attempt after making extension changes is to select the Gear Icon [1], then the Show Student Quiz Results link [2].

Under the heading Students who have taken the quiz, click the name of the student.

Find the allow this student an extra attempt button. You can automatically give a student an extra attempt for the quiz.

Courses


Why I need to Publish?

Why I need to Publish?


Publishing your course is very important. Unpublished courses do not show up in the student's course list, causing students to think they aren't registered for the course. Access to the course is controlled by start/end dates, not by published/unpublished status. If a course remains unpublished, students will never be able to access it. For help with how to publish, see the next drop down.

How do I publish my Course?

A message will appear at the top of your screen confirming the publishing of your course.

What are the different states of a Canvas course?

What are the different states of a Canvas course?


Unpublished courses are courses in preparation; they are courses being authored by instructors, instructional designers, and administrators. While a course is unpublished, it is invisible/non-accessible to students.

When the course material is deemed ready by the designer, instructor, or administrator, it may be published with the click of a button.

Published courses instantly show up in the student's course drop down list, but are only accessible to students based on the start/end dates of the course.  When published, activity is dictated by the dates and status of course assignments and modules. Individual assignments, modules, or other course content can be individually locked (made unavailable to students) or assigned a date in the future, prior to which students will not be able to see or participate in said course component.

These courses will appear in the My Courses section of the Courses menu in the Global Navigation Menu.

Concluded courses are courses that are completed according to the SIS information or term dates, or courses that have been manually marked complete by an instructor or administrator. In concluding a course, instructors and students can no longer participate in the course. This is the archived state of the course.

These courses will appear in the Past Courses section of the Courses menu in the Global Navigation Menu.

A message will appear at the top of your screen confirming the course deletion.

What is the Course Setup Checklist?

What is the Course Setup Checklist?


A course originally starts in an unpublished state allowing instructors to set up course and ready the content while concealing it from students. Instructors, designers, and admins can add students, teachers, and TAs to the course. As soon as you're ready then you can publish your course and make it available to the students.

The Course Setup Checklist appears as a gray pop-up pane at the bottom of your screen when you first create a new course in Canvas. The checklist reminds you to:

  • Import content using the Course Import Tool
  • Add assignments or assignment shells on the Assignments page
  • Select the links you wish to display in the Course Navigation under the Navigation tab in Settings
  • Choose a layout for your Course Home Page
  • Add events and Assignments to your course Calendar

Modules


What are Modules?

What are Modules?


Modules allow you to organize your content to help control the flow of your course.

Modules are used to organize course content by weeks, units, or a different organizational structure works for your course. With modules, you are essentially creating a one-directional linear flow of what you would like your students to do.

Each module can contain discussions, assignments, quizzes, and other learning materials that you would like to use. You can easily add items to your module that you have already created in the course or create new content shells within the modules. Course content can be added to multiple modules or iterated several times throughout an individual module. Modules can be easily organized using the drag and drop feature. Elements within the modules can also be reorganized by dragging and dropping.

You can use Modules to:

  • Create prerequisite activities that students must complete before moving on in the course
  • Track student progress through a sequence of learning activities
  • Organize course content by unit, day, week, topic or Outcome
