What are my options for help with Canvas?

Canvas Support hotlines are separate and specific for students and faculty (course design and admin). Access the entire Help menu (? icon) in the Global Navigation Menu (purple menu, far left-hand side). Included are: The Canvas Guides (answers to common Canvas questions), and live (phone or text) Chat, or by submitting a ticket with Canvas Support. https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-1524.

What is the difference between a Survey and a Course Evaluation Project?

A Survey is a series of questions that get presented to a student term after term.

A Course Evaluation Project is the term specific wrapper that holds all the pieces that go into an evaluation period (users, courses, survey(s), communications, and then reports).  Each project will contain a main survey (the series of questions you have created). All courses within a project must use the same main survey.  If some courses need a different main survey, they would have to be in a different project.

When will Canvas be integrated with rosters from Student Planning?

As of Fall 2017, we are fully integrated. Course rosters are set to update automatically, so you will not add users manually. You can, however, still use the +People feature to add additional users (including co-teachers, librarians, and other liaisons, etc.) to your course. For more details on adding people to your course, visit the Canvas Guide: https://guides.instructure.com/m/4152/l/40729-how-do-i-add-users-to-a-course.

When do I have to start using Canvas for my courses?

Likely, Fall 2018. All courses became available for Canvas in Spring 2018, so faculty may teach in either Canvas or CampusCruiser during Spring and Summer 2018. Adopting Canvas during Spring and Summer semesters is highly encouraged because CampusCrusier will no longer be available for classes once we cut over.

Is Widener offering any training to help faculty make the transition to Canvas?
