Canvas Analytics: Course Design Considerations

Learn what student and course analytics are available to Canvas instructors. How to design your Canvas course to get the most out of these analytics.

Canvas Design Tools: Build an Eye Catching Course Quickly

CSU has incorporated the Cidilabs Design Tools into Canvas.  The tools allow an instructor to create attractive course pages, quickly create multiple modules and easily update assignment due dates and availability dates.

Canvas and VeriCite Content Matching Tool Now Integrated with Canvas Assignments

VeriCite is the tool CSU has adopted to check online student submissions for content matching / plagiarism.  The tool checks the content in a student’s paper against common web sites and other CSU VeriCite submissions.  This allows an instructor to focus more on the quality of the content and less on whether the content is the student’s original work.  New for spring 2017 is the integration of VeriCite and the Canvas SpeedGrader.
