Canvas Transition Update

As the Fall Semester is coming to an end, we have a few exciting Canvas updates to share!

  • Grade Transfer to WINS. eGrading is now available for Canvas which will allow you to automatically send your final grades to WINS.  For step by step instructions, see
  • Canvas course navigation bar will be receiving an update. Starting December 26th instructors will be able to add Discussions (this allows students to see discussion alerts) and People (this allows students to self-enroll in groups) as course navigation items, as well as remove Syllabus and Collaborations if they are not used.
  • Winterim and Spring Courses are now available inside of Canvas.
    As a reminder, there is no more course request process with Canvas. All courses will be automatically created inside of Canvas.  If you teach the same course every semester, you may see two courses that look alike.  On the dashboard, you will also see the course term listed.  This will help you locate the correct course.
