The following features and tools have been updated in Canvas for the spring '21 semester:
We have updated Ed Discussion to LTI 1.3 which allows for the roster in Ed to be synched with the Canvas roster. The update removed Ed temporarily from the left navigation menu. To bring it back in, please go to Settings and then Navigation and drag Ed Discussion up to the unhidden field.
Spring '21 course sites will be ready by November 6th, 2020. Student enrollment will be added early December.
The McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning has created a Princeton-specific guide to Canvas for faculty, staff, teaching assistants and administrators. It will give a quick and broad overview of Canvas' features and tools.
We are in the process of building course sites for Fall 2020. If you are teaching on Canvas, you'll receive a notification from one of McGraw's instructional designers when your course site is ready. If you have questions about the status of your site, please email canvas.princeton.edu.
As Princeton gradually transitions from Blackboard to Canvas, Princeton University Library is exploring ways to connect library resources and services to the new learning management system.
During three meetings this fall, the Undergraduate Student Advisory Group has discussed the needs and challenges undergraduates might experience related to their course work, and how the purposeful implementation of Canvas can address them.
On Friday Sept. 20, 2019, the Strategic Advisory Group on IT (SAGIT) approved the funding request for the Canvas Implementation Project.
