Using course nicknames for easy identification

by | Aug 21, 2017 | Canvas tips

Have you experienced difficulty identifying your course year and semester when using Canvas Inbox and Calendar?

If you have, we would like to suggest that you use a nickname for your course.

The nickname you choose is visible only to yourself. Others will see the course official name, or the nickname they have chosen.

For easy identification we suggest using the year, semester and course code as the nickname (e.g., 2017/S2-XXXYYY123)
