Canvas News: Plus Training Videos for Staff: Get Ready for 2019/20!
First, a bit of news:
- The Canvas teacher app has been updated and greatly improved. Please install the latest version if you haven’t already.
- The GSA Intranet has launched (and there was much rejoicing). This means that HR and Marketing forms and information are now found at intranet.gsa.ac.uk, rather than on the VLE. Please go to the Intranet from here on out. The Blackboard VLE is being phased out.
The 2019 Degree Show is upon us. That means Summer! And New Canvas Courses…
Before you head off for far flung locales, you may want to get your 2019/20 Canvas courses up and ready.
Learning Technology have created a four – part video series that lasts 20 minutes in total, and a new 10-point checklist to tell you everything you need to know about rolling over your course and getting content imported and in place.
You can view the videos in Canvas. Or, you can take a look at them in this blog post, below. You will also be able to view the videos on the home page of your 19/20 Canvas courses, where you will find all four of them embedded!
19/20 course ‘shells’ will be available to staff from mid-June, or earlier by arrangement. Get in touch –firstname.lastname@example.org – if you are keen to make a start and you can have early access to your 19/20 courses.
