Managing and Organizing Your Course
1. Make announcements
By default, announcements are sent to students' email associated with their Canvas account. Students can add multiple email addresses to their Canvas account if they wish to receive notifications in multiple locations.
Tip! Clicking Save actually sends announcements. If you're still drafting it, delay posting Announcements to go out at a future time to continue working on it.
4. Get to know your grading options
Use SpeedGrader (Use Chrome browser) to grade assignments and quizzes and give feedback online, even audio or video feedback. You can manually enter and edit grades in the Gradebook. Third party tool Gradescope is also an option if you have handwritten homework or exams. You may even calculate final grades in Canvas.
6. Organize with Pages and Modules
Pages and Modules both let you create and combine content with links to Files, Assignments, Quizzes, Discussions, and external links. Here's a Module about Modules, and a Page about combining Files and Pages and an article about the ideal use of each for organizing content.
