Managing Your Course
1. Get to know your students
Your students are visible in Roster Photos, which also includes their preferred pronouns and name pronunciation, if they've set it up in NameCoach. Learn more about Roster Photos + NameCoach
2. Make announcements
Announcements are sent to students' preferred email or phone.
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.
