As part of the transition to EEE Canvas, the Office of Information Technology has been working to rebuild the EEE Evaluations tool. After several quarters of development and extensive user testing, we are ready to have people try out the self-diagnostic midterm evaluation functionality as a pilot for a Spring Quarter 2017 class. For the duration of the pilot, this new tool will be referred to as “EEE Evaluations.Next” (and sometimes shortened to Evals.Next).
In this update, Canvas released a new mechanism to see information about a student and interact with that student, and a new discussion setting.
Canvas has been updated with enhanced functionality, including group creation in an assignment, updated setting for recurring calendar events, mastery paths assignment description, and updated icons.
Canvas has been updated with a variety of new or enhanced functionality, including the ability to include announcements on a custom homepage, streamlined student access to scheduler items, enhanced course listings, updated re-ordering functionality within ePortfolios, updated icons, and a variety of bug fixes.
Welcome to our first tech post! These posts will give the campus a behind-the-scenes look at the systems that power EEE Canvas and the transition.
Today we’re going to be covering: EEE GrandCentral
When we first started providing EEE Canvas to the campus, we wanted to give instructors the freedom to teach courses on EEE Canvas the way they want to teach them. EEE GrandCentral was built to provide instructors with the flexibility to tailor their course spaces to their teaching needs.
Canvas has been updated with a variety of new or enhanced functionality, including restricting group associations by section, automatic updates of customized course listings, the workflow for file renaming, group notifications for instructors and TAs, access to rubrics, and a variety of bug fixes.
Updates to error handling on Grade Converter Tool
Provided by EEE
This update provides a mechanism for instructors to respond to an additional individual in the original file that contains scores. In the process of converting a file full of assignment scores for import into EEE Canvas, if the file contains a student who is not associated with the course space, then the instructor will be presented with the option to either continue and download the file without the additional individual, or cancel the current operation completely.
Canvas has been updated with a new feature, titled Mastery Paths, which will allow instructors to create customized learning experiences for students. Additionally, the calendar display has been updated and terminology surrounding pages is now consistent.
The assignments within Canvas have been updated to more easily associate group sets and incorporate groups into peer reviews. Additionally, the To Do list has been updated and is now more complete.
