Does anyone have suggestions on the different companies that offer early alert type of analytics that can be integrated with Canvas? I know of Dropout Detective and Instructor Insight from AspirEDU and Lighthouse from BlueCanary, any other suggestions on what to explore? I see Student Explorer is presenting at InstructureCon, anyone using it? …(Show moreShow less)
I'm not seeing a way to use the API to get the user's last login date... Here's my scenario: We are creating user accounts for our parents based on them having a similar account in our SIS. However, once the account is created (I'm doing that via the SIS Imports) I want to turn off notifications, but only if the account has never been accessed.…(Show moreShow less)
I found the (undocumented) endpoint that does this. It is used by the new account people tab. (also threw in how to get emails included). /api/v1/accounts/:account_id/users?include=last_login&include=email OR find an individual user below /api/v1/accounts/:account_id/users?include=last_login&include=email&search_term=:sis_user_id…
We are trying to figure out the least time-consuming way to hide course material from students during exams to mitigate cheating. Ideally, there would be an option for 'teaching staff only' in the course visibility settings. The only option we are coming across is to un-publish course content individually, but that would be tedious for teaching…(Show moreShow less)
I wanted to find out how many universities use Canvas for non-academic courses, like online tutoring, instructor resources, advising, and other types of activities outside of academic departments. We are preparing to launch an Instructor Canvas Resource course, that all faculty will automatically be enrolled in and we already have online tutoring…(Show moreShow less)
don, we do this for our police academy classes. We just create their accounts in Canvas and then give them our non-CAS login. They are done when the course closes, but if you wanted to you could remove them altogether from Canvas.
Our district's SIS import is set up to cross-list courses with multiple sections (three sections of Algebra I for example), which makes sense in a majority of scenarios. But, in certain cases, it doesn't fit the bill. A teacher would like to de-cross-list one section from a course that has three courses. (That section covers the same standards but…(Show moreShow less)
Hi Tamy, We have used BBB before and have decided to move away from it because there wasn't any easy way to get recorded conferences out of it. I am going to share this question over with the Instructional Designers and Canvas Admins as I am sure users in both of these groups will have some valuable knowledge of conference tools that theyPreviewHide preview
I'm looking into a student's activity in Canvas, and I am scrutinizing the IP addresses in page views. Among them are small clusters of activity (4-5 page views) with an IP address that points to Amazon, in Ashburn VA. Has anyone run across this? It occurred to me that it COULD maybe be what happens when someone is using the Canvas skill with…(Show moreShow less)
Interesting! I've been digging into this more, and I noticed some other cases where the Amazon IPs are popping up. In at least two of those cases, it was absolutely NOT Alexa-related, and seemed to be occurring when LTI's were pinging our account. For example, I have an access token for a publisher that is tied to my admin account (I know, bad…
Hello everyone, Has anyone established minimum Canvas requirements for all faculty at your institution? Our academic administration has identified the following as baseline: Post a copy of the course syllabus Program all assignments into the course calendar Post course materials broken up by week Post PowerPoint slides from class, if…(Show moreShow less)
Every course at our institution (online, hybrid, in person) has a Canvas course shell. We require the following be added to the Canvas course shell: Homepage Syllabus Grades In order to teach an online course it must be reviewed by an online advisory board and the instructor must successfully complete an online certification course in Canvas.
