Canvas is compatible with pretty much all major browsers and devices, provided you have updated them. See Which browsers does Canvas support? for a specific list of browser versions that are compatible with Canvas.
In Canvas, you cannot add new links to the navigation menu, only remove, hide, or change the order of links.* If an item is grayed out, it means you can see it, but students can’t. See How do I reorder and hide Course Navigation links? for more information, and use the Student View (see above) to double check how your course and navigation looks to your students.
Pages are static web pages. They are meant to hold content, like text, embedded videos, links to outside resources, etc. Modules let you sequence and organize your content and activities. A module might contain one or more pages, plus an assignment, a pdf file, a quiz, and so forth. With a module, you can set the sequence and whether or not students are required to view or complete an item in a module. Modules help students understand what they need to do in your course.
Go to Assignments and add as you would normally do, fill out the usual info, Assignment name, and content, points, etc.
Scroll down to the usual submission type.
Assuming you are accepting an online upload of text or a file, etc., as you scroll down you will see the new feature called, PLAGIARISM REVIEW! This ONLY shows up after you check Text Entry and or File Uploads.
Change the “none” choice to the Turn It In option, and a host of features with check off boxes appear!
Check or uncheck what you want. After completing all of that, SAVE.
After saving it, you will see the Rubric option just like before.
When editing text in Canvas, click the pi icon (π) in the rich text editor toolbar to open the math editor and insert math equations and chemistry formulas. You can click on 'Switch View to Advanced' in the math editor to paste in LaTeX. For more details and examples, see How do I use the Math Editor in the Rich Editor?
Click the settings gear icon next to any item to delete it. Example: How do I delete an assignment? Note, however, that when you are on the Modules page, it says 'Remove', not 'Delete'. That is because modules only contain links to items, not the actual items. If you remove a page or file from a module, the page or file is still in your course, just no longer listed in that module. To delete it, you need to go to the Pages or Files area, or to the actual item to be able to delete it.
You can undelete and restore items that were accidentally deleted. Add "/undelete" (no quotes) to the end of the URL to your course. See Undeleting things in Canvas.
You can add more than the maximum points to an assignment in the gradebook or SpeedGrader (example: 105/100). If you use assignment group weighting, however, and you create a zero point 'bonus' assignment, make sure it is in a group with at least one other non-zero point assignment, or the bonus points will not be counted (because zero points times percentage weight equals zero).
There are hundreds of apps compatible with Canvas listed on EduAppCenter. You can add them by going to your course -> Settings -> Apps. One example third party app is the Piazza question & answer forum tool. To add some third party apps, you may need a consumer key, shared secret, and launch URL (for example, see these instructions for adding Piazza to Canvas). If you cannot find these through a search or through contacting the third party vendor, please contact your IT support.
