Camino 2: Tips of the Week - Taking Attendance and Scheduling Tab

Tip #1:  Are you taking attendance using the Canvas roll call feature? If so, are students complaining that they are getting emails each time?  If this is the case, you can mute roll call in the grade book and reduce student notifications!  Check out the help guide in Canvas at:

Tip #2:  Do you take time in class to schedule meetings with your students?  Check out the Scheduler tab on your Canvas calendar where you can create an Appointment group so that students can schedule themselves during the times you specified.

Join us for a Canvas Brown bag on EITHER Thursday, 10/31 or Friday, 11/1
Come share how you are using Canvas and get answers to your questions.  

Thursday, 10/31  12:15 - 1:15pm, Learning Commons' Faculty Development Lab

Friday, 11/1  11:45 - 12:45pm, Learning Commons' Faculty Development Lab

Bring your lunch and we'll provide drinks and cookies.

We'll have a short demo on how Roll Call works, and how to use the scheduler to create an Appointment Group that allows students to "sign up" in available time slots.
