Understanding Canvas Announcements - What happens when I import announcements to a new Semester

When you copy an entire Canvas Course from one semester to another, course announcements also come over.  It can be tricky to understand how these copied over announcements behave in your new course. 

I’ve compiled a list of notes and suggestions to help understand how Announcements work:

Getting Started with Kaltura - DRAFT

Anytime a new technology is adopted they the whole University, it takes a while for the tool to get spun up and used as it was intended. Kaltura is not different. ITLD is working hard to pull together complete training resources and Training Paths which will be distributed as soon as they are completed. We will be sure to inform everyone when that happens. Until that time, this blog post is available to give you just enough information to get started using Kaltura. It is lot complete guide, but is a resource to help you start to use Kaltura.

Giving Extra Time or additional tries in Canvas

Every now and again, faculty receive letters from students who have some type of disability. Not all disabilities are physical, some are neurological and require that students be given extra time on quizzes, exams or any other assignment that is timed. The student works with the Office of Disability Services and is given a letter to share with their instructors to receive the accommodation outlined in the letter. Sometimes, you may need to give a student another attempt at an assignment for any number of reasons.
