The Canvas team has created and found Canvas feature ideas based on your feedback. To increase the chance of them being implemented, please for the the ones you would like to see realised.
If you require access to your 2018 course you need to contact your course access authoriser.
During the Learn Do Share 2017, Sally Eberhard shared some Canvas tips and tricks. On this one she explains that every Canvas course has a hidden page which stores a list of deleted items from the course – a bit like the Recycle Bin on your desktop computer. However, not everything is recoverable.
We would like to suggest that courses are published at least 2 weeks prior to the beginning of the semester. Publishing will allow students to see in the dashboard the courses in which they are enrolled.
Year-long courses and courses with different codes but with the same content are potential candidates for cross-listing. We strongly recommend that you read about these and, if applicable to you, get your courses cross-listed before you start the course setup. Once students submit an assignment, we will no longer be able to perform the cross-listing.
