Getting Started with UTA Canvas

This session will provide a beginner's tour of Canvas. It will introduce you to the Dashboard, Course list, Calendar, Inbox, Help links, and Personal Notification Settings. We will also view a course in UTA Canvas introducing Course Settings, the Rich Content Editor, Announcements, Uploading a Syllabus, and Cross-listing (Merging) courses.

 

Canvas Course Modules

Modules allow instructors to organize content to help control the flow of the course. Pages store content and educational resources that can include text, video, and links to files. Help your students keep track of what they've done and haven't done by adding requirements (submit, view, mark as done, contribute to the page, score at least) to each content item in your course Modules. This allows the students to see quickly and easily what they have already done (for both content and assignments) and which items they still need to complete.
