A better teaching and learning experience.
Get Ready for Fall 2020 in Canvas
*NEW* Direct Share
The new Direct Share tool in Canvas allows instructors to share individual course pages with other instructors at Texas State. You can also use Direct Share to copy a single page into another course. When you share or copy a page, it will include any assets within that page (images, files, etc.). Direct Share is an easy tool that allows you to save valuable time. Learn more about Direct Share in the Canvas Community.
*NEW* Per Course Notifications
You could always set your preferred notification settings in Canvas, but Canvas now offers per course notifications. With per course notifications, you can customize notifications that would only apply to a single course. Get the updates when and how you want them, for each course. Learn more about per course notifications in the Canvas Community.
Clean up your courses with TidyUP
TidyUP is a content clean up tool that provides a quick way to view all your course content and clean out anything that you no longer need. It identifies and deletes extra files, folders, pages, or assignments, making your course easier to manage and use. See what all the tool can do for you on the TidyUP service webpage.
