New this week in Canvas

As many of you may already know, Canvas is a living and breathing LMS. Canvas schedules updates and new features every three weeks! This week canvas released several new items that I thing faculty will like.

Attendance

  • The Attendance is a new tool that Canvas just enabled.  It links to a service called Roll Call, and is used to take daily classroom attendance.  This attendance tool is supposed to be integrated with the Gradebook as well.  It’s a brand new tool, so there’s not yet any documentation, so use it as you will.

Calendar 2

  • Also enabled for us this week was the option of using Calendar 2.  This is a revamped version of the Calendar.  The new calendar is faster, supports weekly and daily views, along with Scheduler.  The scheduler tool lets you set up time slots that students (or student groups) can sign up for.  For more information on Scheduler visit the Canvas help guides.
