Question Detail

Is anyone already using Canvas as their school's LMS? What do you think? How have you used it? We're adopting it for this fall, but I haven't seen it in action yet.

      I teach online courses and we just switched from Blackboard to Canvas. It's awesome! The SpeedGrader app is wonderful and it's so simple to build quizzes, tests and assignments aligned to rubrics. The options for students submitting work are endless and you can use the Kaltura app to post videos directly into Course Modules. Way more user friendly than BB.

        Unfortunately, I've not used it .... just in theory...

          Thanks for the input, Beth! Since this will be my first time with Canvas, I want to pilot portfolios in just one of my classes this year. Good luck, and I hope to hear about your ongoing experience.

            Katie, Do any of your teachers have multiple level classes? I have two periods with split classes, just saw my Canvas main page, and they're listed as nine separate courses. Obviously, that would mean duplicating a lot of the shared content in Canvas, unless same period classes can have one common listing. Our tech department is looking in to this for me. If your school had this situation, was there a solution?
